Music & Prayer

Music, as Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel taught, provides the catalyst for connecting the disparate elements of the finely woven tapestry of (Kevah) the fixed words of liturgy–and (Kavanah) our deepest, truest intentions to reach and serve God. At North Shore Congregation Israel, we search for ways to fill Kevah with Kavanah. We explore the possibility that music can function in many ways including:


1) Praising God

2) Providing a deeper understanding of our sacred texts.

3) Resonating with our community 

4) Linking us to our history

5) Connecting us to our coreligionists around the world

6) Allowing us to explore the awesome nature of God

7) Creating moments of introspection 

8) Deepening our relationships within our families


Here at NSCI you will find music infused into every aspect of our community’s life. We invite you to join us on a sacred journey with music as our vehicle.
