Jewish Identity Through Music

Words and rituals have power, but they soar when combined with music. At University Synagogue we believe that music elevates our experience, blending word and spirit, providing its own language of joy, hope, and connection to the past.  Cantor Braier leads and inspires us to connect to Judaism through the beauty of music.

From Pre-School to Religious School, music is ever present in our children’s Jewish education.  Our Children’s Choir, Adult Choir  and Young Cantors Ensemble are all opportunities for the musical voice of our congregation.  From our house band to our children’s band to visiting musicians – music is integral to life at our shul.
