Over the millennia, Jews have developed many, many tunes for our prayers. At Beth El, we use a mix of traditional and modern nusach (melodies) during our services. As part of an effort to become a more inclusive community and to continue to help people become leaders of our services, this page contains recordings of those tunes that we use most often. Most of these have been recorded by B’nai Mitzvah Coordinator, Jessie Lunk. Many of the recordings for Shabbat morning were recorded by Rabbi Greyber and included melodies from elsewhere in the Jewish world. The melodies are in full harmony and feature instruments so that the community may enjoy the full experience.
Feel free to listen, download, and share these melodies. The listed page numbers refer to Siddur Sim Shalom.
Shabbat TunesPlease note that there are tunes for Shabbat Evening (Kabbalat Shabbat, Ma'ariv) and Shabbat morning (Shacharit, Shabbat Torah Service, and Shabbat Musaf).
