Adult Choir Recruitment Flyer for new members


At Adath Emanu-El, music and song plays a large part in our services.  We have both an adult, an HaKesher (teen) and a HaBonim (youth) choir.  Choir is a great way to become more comfortable with Hebrew, make friends, and gain confidence.  We have exciting music and performances in the works for both of our choirs!

 We meet every Wednesday to practice.  Teens/HaKesher will meet 4:30-5:00; Youth/HaBonim will meet from 5:15-6:00 and Adults will meet from 6:30-8:30.  Come join us!  Contact Cantor Sandi for further details.
