Throughout its history, Beth Am Israel has used music to enhance prayer. Music is a vital and vibrant force in our synagogue life. Our prayers are sung, our blessings are chanted, and Torah and Haftarah are read publicly with special melodies.
At Beth Am Israel we have a great tradition of Jewish music: ancient middle-eastern melodies, eastern European tunes, Israel songs and American folk-inspired favorites form our musical palette. New musical arrangements, introduced by Hazzan Harold, are woven into services to keep our prayers lively and present.
