Shir Adat


Shir Adat (Hebrew for “song of witness”) is our adult choir. Directed by Dr. Lorne Dechtenberg, the group is open to all temple members of bar/bat mitzvah age or above who like to sing – no prior musical training is required. We sing for Friday night Shabbat services about once a month, and we also provide music for other congregational, inter-congregational, and interfaith events. We perform a wide range of repertoire, from traditional Jewish melodies and classical choral works to pop music and brand new arrangements. For those seeking to sharpen their musical skills, opportunities exist for members of the choir to sing as soloists, play instruments, and participate in recording projects and outside-of-TAI performances. We rehearse most Wednesday evenings. To get involved, or for more information, contact Lorne at, or simply show up!
