Listen To Our Music on YouTube

Both Temple Jeremiah’s choirs and Cantor Susie Lewis Friedman have performances available for viewing on our YouTube page. We invite you all to listen to their beautiful music.

Sing Along to Cantor Friedman’s “Sing, Pray, Repeat!” Album

“Sing, Pray, Repeat!” was produced by Mike Konopka with Susan Lewis Friedman and was generously sponsored by Harry and Lauren Major. We Sing songs in school, we Pray in services, and we Repeat them for holidays every year! Featuring Laurie Akers, Rayna Green, and original songs by Cantor Friedman, Ellen Allard, Rick Recht, and Pavel Roytman! The album is available on all major streaming platforms; ask your smart speaker to play it!

Musical Traditions

Purim Spiel

The Purim Spiel is an annual parody of the story of Purim told through song! We have told this story with the songs of Disney, Abba, and Queen, with lyrics written by our very own congregants! We are always welcoming new writers, actors, singers, directors, costumers—the whole Megillah!

No musical experience is required, only a desire to have fun is necessary!
