Music is an integral part of our religious services as well as our Temple life. We join in song during our services with our Temple Choir. We are indeed blessed with a choir of thirty voices with four professional vocalists and an organist. Under its founder, Florence Katz, it has achieved a position as one of the leading choral groups on the West Coast of Florida.

The choir participates in all holiday and Friday night Shabbat Services and performs at least one special concert for the congregation and members of the community annually. Among other appearances, it is the major choral group at Longboat Key’s Annual Interfaith Service.

We greatly acknowledge the consistent contribution of our volunteer choir.  They have dedicated time and effort to enhance our services with their beautiful voices.

We extend special thanks to Ruth Kreindler for her generous gift to the 2015-2016 and the 2016-2017 Music Program, in memory of her beloved husband, Lee.
