The Zimriyah - Beth Am's Junior Choir (Tot-5th Grades)
Monthly Fridays before and during Shabbat services, 5:15-7:30 PM

Calling all singers! When you sing in the shower, do you ever think, "hey, that sounds pretty good!"? Do you just like singing along with the songs on the radio? If you answered "yes," then the Zimriyah is the place for you!

Led by Cantor Shpall, the Zimriyah meets monthly on Fridays at 5:15 PM to learn and practice a few songs. Then, they break for dinner and participate in the service that starts at 6:15 PM. There are occasional "off campus" gigs as well! New singers are always welcome - no prior choir experience necessary!
