The Power of Song

Studies show that singing makes people happy-and singing together makes people happier. We couldn’t agree more. Nagilah is the Choral Group of the Forest Hills Jewish Center. Our name means “Let us be joyous!” Our singers consider it their “Happy Place” and perhaps it will be yours, too.

Some information about Nagilah: We have been singing together for 15 years. Some members have been with us right from the start, and others joined more recently. We sing traditional, contemporary, and original Jewish music. We meet for rehearsal and shmoozing on Sunday mornings. Reading music is helpful but not mandatory. A good ear, the ability to carry a tune, and the willingness to learn are all you need. All voice parts (Soprano, Alto, Tenor, and Bass) are welcome.

We sing at a number of events throughout the year, such as the annual Thanksgiving Interfaith Service, Coffee House, and the FHJC Yom HaShoah service.

For further information and to connect with Nagilah, please send an email to Heidi Nelson Rolnick, Director of Nagilah at [email protected].

We look forward to hearing from you!
