Wedding Music Playlist

Music can set a memorable tone at your wedding. At Temple Emanu-El, we are pleased to offer the magnificent sound of our Fifth Avenue Sanctuary organ.

As the largest synagogue organ in the world, Emanu-El’s organ features 8,000 pipes ranging in size from that of a pencil to nearly 35 feet tall. In the spring of 2000, Emanu-El began a 2½-year restoration of the organ that involved the dismantling of the entire instrument so that each component could be evaluated carefully, repaired or remade as needed.

The following musical selections are performed by our temple organists. All links are MP3 files that may be downloaded to a personal listening device. Wedding music may be classical or Jewish; if you do not find a selection you like, then please contact our Wedding Coordinator.
