Music & Prayer                                         

Calling all instrumentalists, from beginner to professional, join “Tizmoret Tikvah”!  We’re forming a Shir Tikvah instrumental ensemble, which will play at Shabbat Shira on Friday, January 30.  Come check out the music, give it a try.  Sunday, November 16, 12:00-2:00 p.m.  The first hour will be playing through musical scores, the second hour will be jamming and improvising to a few melody lines, so you can choose one hour, or come to both!  Attending this first gathering does not require a commitment to Shabbat Shira, but we will be looking for an ensemble.  Even if you haven’t played for a long time, dust off the tuba, shine up your cello, flugelhorn, or whatever you’ve got.

Those who RSVP by November 1 will be able to look over your score before November 16.  Walk-ins accepted, but it’s very helpful to know you’ll be there so that we can get enough music for you. Please RSVP.


We love having congregants chant Torah!  Come one, come all!  Plenty of readings to go around, but we need you!!!  Already chanted before?  Sign up again!  Parent of a teenager?  Encourage them to sign up!  THANK YOU! Please let Wendy know if you’d like to chant Torah, on the Shabbat dates listed below.  Help with text and recordings is available as needed.  THANK YOU!!!!

The Shir Tikvah Choir

Shir Tikvah is a musical congregation, blending harmonies at services, and has an active choir. 

Shir Tikvah Choir, under the direction of Marlys Fiterman, sings for the High Holy Days and for Shabbat Shira. We sing from a varied repertoire from early composers such as Lewandowski and Janowski, to modern composers such as Finkelstein and Maseng. To volunteer for the choir, please contact our Director of Spiritual Engagement, Wendy Goldberg.

Wedding Songs:  Note:  These are "traditional" wedding songs, not changed for gender.  These are the best renditions we could find to give you a sampling, but not necessary in the tempo and cadence you'd want for a wedding.  Wendy is very happy to play through this WITH you, sample them in person, talk about the texts, change wording for gender, etc.
