Music is described as the language of the soul.
Music is an important part of the TBE experience.
It elevates our meaningful moments, enlivens our celebrations, and provides comfort in times of sorrow.
TBE is blessed with talented musicians who inspire us time and time again.
Cantor Shanna Zell leads us in song, prayer, healing, and rejoicing. She finds joy and fulfillment in uplifting our community through music.
Musicians at TBE
Our sound and prayer are elevated by the finest musicians in the Greater Boston area.
TBE Youth Zac Gondelman and Asher Navisky are teaming up to connect our community through music with a weekly music series. Each Thursday, we’ll share a song they recorded that links to our Jewish learning. Stay tuned for new recordings, which you can see here!
