Our professional temple band adds joy and spirit to many of our Friday evening Shabbat services throughout the year. Below you will find recordings of the melodies that we use during our Family Service. These are the melodies that will become the standards for your children as they grow up at Emanu-El. Please feel free to download and share these recordings, listen to them as a family to learn the words and tunes that will form the soundtrack of your family worship here at Emanu-El.
