Synagogue Music at Emanu-El

The glorious, soul-stirring music of Temple Emanu-El resounds
in our sanctuary as a part of Sabbath, holiday and ceremonial services.

Experiencing the sound of Emanu-El’s magnificent organ and talented professional choir performing the music of our heritage lifts the hearts of all who listen. This sophisticated classical music is a perfect complement to the awe-inspiring beauty of our sanctuary.

Senior Cantor Mo Glazman and Music Director Simon Mulligan lead the choir in some of the greatest music ever composed for the synagogue. The professional choir at Temple Emanu-El consists of 17 singers who not only have highly trained classical voices but who are some of the finest choral musicians in New York City. Because of this professionalism, the congregation is able to hear intricate, sophisticated choral music beyond the scope of most other synagogues.

On Friday, July 1, 2016, we welcomed Cantor Glazman to his inaugural service, where he delivered a D’var Torah about the rituals of Judaism and their role in living a meaningful life.

We also are joined by Dr. Andrew Henderson as associate organist, K. Scott Warren as an associate organist, and Daniel Beckwith as assistant organist. Our current cantorial intern is Alexandra (“Alex”) Kurland.
