Prayer, Music, & Spirituality

Music at B’nai Jeshurun reflects the rich kaleidoscope of Jewish diversity and is integral to our meaningful experience of prayer. It serves as a bridge between different cultures and traditions, and exemplifies BJ’s commitment to embracing the diversity of Jewish life.

From passionate nigunim (wordless melodies) to soulful piyutim (liturgical poems), devotional music is a powerful pathway to spiritual development, and it is an essential part of BJ’s spiritual identity.

Each Shabbat, our Spiritual Leaders are joined by an ensemble of extraordinary musicians, elevating our service with music from a plurality of cultures and traditions. Musical life at BJ permeates our experience beyond the realm of prayer, through a year-long concert series, as well. Drawing talented artists from across global tapestry of musical life, our concert series offers world-class musical programming as an extension of spiritual practice.
