Music Programs

"There is a temple in heaven that is only opened through music."
-mystical writings of the Zohar 


   With the guidance and support of our indefatigable Cantor Lori Wilinsky Frank, our congregation has developed a truly unique array of music programs that touch the entire congregation. The music incorporated into our worship services and programing includes a full range of traditional, modern, meditative, spirited, Sephardic and Ashkenazic melodies and styles, in both song and instrumental music. 

Our younger congregants experience the joy of worship through song by participating in our Junior Choir. The Junior Choir is open to students of our Mosad Shalom Religious School in grades 1-4. The Junior choir sings at Family Services from September through June, and also shares their delightful voices on other special occasions. Sign your child up for Junior Choir when you register for Mosad Shalom.

Our Adult Choir sings at Rosh Hashanah, Kol Nidre and Yom Kippur, Yom Hashoah, and other services throughout the year. For the High Holy Days our choir is joined by professional section leaders and a professional director. 

Our Contemporary Rosh Hashanah choir brings a modern, lively sound to our unique late-morning Contemporary Rosh Hashanah service.

Our Simchat Shabbat Band plays toe-tapping, hand-clapping, klezmer style music to our services several times each year, and also plays at special events such as our Jewish Food Festival.

The Temple Adat Shalom Menschtones is an all-male a capella barbershop-style ensemble that brings fresh arrangements of familiar songs. The Menschtones participate at many of our Shabbat services including the Men's Club Shabbat, our Thanksgiving Interfaith Service, and Chanukah service. They also perform at special programs and community events.

Congregants age 16 and older who are interested in participating in any of our adult music groups should contact Cantor Frank at 858.451.1200 or email her at
