Elana Arian, a leading voice in contemporary Jewish music, will join us for Shabbat worship on Friday, December 4. She will be leading and singing her music during worship and giving us a sermon in song. It is an event you will not want to miss.
Elana Arian is one of the leading voices in contemporary Jewish music. A composer, multi-instrumentalist, prayer leader, and recording artist, Elana inspires communities across the country with her soulful songwriting and spirit. Elana’s work has been included in many Transcontinental Music publications, including both the popular Ruach and Shabbat Anthology series, and her compositions are sung in synagogues, summer camps, and spiritual communities from London to Cape Town, from Australia to New Orleans, and everywhere in between. Elana has released three albums of original music and is thrilled to be working on her fourth. Elana has served on the faculty of both Shirei Chagiga in London and the Hebrew Union College – Jewish Institute of Religion in New York, working as a teaching artist in the Debbie Friedman School of Sacred Music. She has performed at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Tanglewood, and perhaps most memorably, five separate appearances at the (Obama) White House.
