Join the Choir!


The Beth El Temple Center Choir is involved throughout the year singing at the Temple, in the Belmont Community, and in the greater Boston community.It is a great way to meet other congregants and to perform beautiful Jewish music. The Choir is open to all our congregants without auditioning and there is no sight-singing necessary.You can also choose the rehearsals and programs that best fit your schedule and come to only those that work for you.So this year, make the Choir part of your life and lift your voice with us in song!

On the third Friday of each month we will have our T'fillah band shabbat service with marvelous music and dance. We hope you will join us in song and worship for these very lively and moving services!
