A Warm Welcome from Our Clergy

Rabbi Gilah Langner

A place of learning, joy, and music. A place to find a connection to Judaism. A community of social justice seekers.  We welcome you to Shirat HaNefesh, a place to find the song of your own spiritual soul. We are open to seekers of all backgrounds and levels of interest.

We fill our services with beautiful music of both Ashkenazi and Sephardi traditions, and we consider no question too foolish or too deep to put to the rabbi. Bring your cup of coffee and your kids. Wherever you are on your Jewish path, come find a home at Shirat HaNefesh.

Rabbi Langner and Hazzan Tasat

Hazzan (Cantor) Ramón Tasat
