The Beth El Band

Beth El is joined by some of its musical members to form the Beth El Band — which provides a rockin’ musical experience each year at our Simchat Torah celebrations. The band is occasionally in need of new and alternate members. If you’re a band-oriented musician and are interested in lending your talents (or just want to share with the Hazzan that you’re interested in playing music at Beth El!), please contact Hazzan Fradkin at
