Volunteer Music Opportunities
Music is integral to Jewish spirituality, particularly here at Beth Torah, and there are many volunteer opportunities to participate in the musical life of the congregation. Along with our choirs and ensemble, we depend upon volunteer singers and musicians to assist in leading weekly Erev Shabbat worship and Sunday morning Religious School worship. Volunteers also help provide music for High Holy Day observances and other important events throughout the year.
