Happiness is singing in the choir



Shir Chants and Shir Tzion sing at a concert at Mount Zion.

Shir Tzion, for 3rd through 6th graders

Meets Sunday mornings when there is Religious School, 9:00-9:30 a.m.
Participates in services the first Friday of every month.

Shir Tzion children’s choir is a Mount Zion treasure.  The choir rehearses in the sanctuary on Sundays from 9:00 to 9:30 a.m.  Directed by Cantor Spilker, Shir Tzion sings the first Friday of every month for the 6:30 pm Shabbat service. The choir also ­performs at special programs.  Singing with Shir Tzion is a wonderful way for students to learn prayers, strengthen their Hebrew skills, and expand their Jewish music repertoire while serving the congregation and having fun!  Contact Cantor Spilker with questions.

Seventh Grade Ensemble

Seventh grade graduates of Shir Tzion will have the opportunity to work with Cantor Spilker on some repertoire to sing at each others’ B’nei Mitzvah. She will be in touch with you to work out scheduling rehearsals.  Contact Cantor Spilker if you are interested.
