At Beit T’Shuvah we integrate spirituality and recovery through our music. The Music in Recovery Program has the unique ability to evoke joy, self-expression, belonging, and connection. Friday night and Saturday morning Shabbat music, led by Cantorial Soloist Nathan Roth and the Beit T’Shuvah band, consists of traditional prayers and original music written by our residents and staff. It’s a time for the community to come together in song and dance.
The Beit T’Shuvah band is made up of residents, staff and alumni. They play at Shabbat services, rehearse throughout the week and collaborate on relevant song choices for the weekly Torah portion. The connection that music creates between the band members and the congregants is palpable in our beautiful sanctuary.
Residents, alumni and community members find their voice while being a part of something greater than themselves. The Choir performs at Shabbat services, High Holidays, fundraisers, private concerts and often collaborates with other temples. Anyone can join and no one is turned away.
To join, please contact Laura Bagish at 310.204.5200, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Throughout the year, we hold community-wide events. We have themed Shabbat services, Talent Shows, yearly gala productions, as well as music for every Jewish Holiday on the calendar.
Our music department offers an array of opportunities for our residents to engage in meaningful music. Some of these include:
Songwriting group which meets weekly to write original music for spiritual and secular songs to be recorded in our music studio, the opportunity to play live at our services and/or events, work therapy opportunities and more!
