Music of Prayer

Beth Tzedec continues to honour its tradition of being the Music Synagogue of Toronto. 

From the grandeur of our musical High Holy Days services—with incomparable H̱azzan Moshe Fishel, the internationally-renowned conductor Mein Briskman and the Lishmoa El Harina Ensemble—to our monthly Friday evening Shabbat at the Floor Services with Cantor Sidney Ezer, artist-in-residence Aviva Chernick and Yacov Fruchter and our bi-weekly Shabbat morning Musical Participatory Services with the HarmonEzers, we continue to lift our voices in song and celebration.


October 7, November 11 & 25 and December 9

Join us at Beth Tzedec or via livestream for this musical Shabbat morning service led by Cantor Sidney Ezer, Asher Farber and the HarmonEzers, our small, vocal ensemble. 

Lift your soul in prayer as you sing with us or close your eyes in meditation and be carried away by the magnificent harmonic sounds of the service. We will introduce new melodies and revive older and familiar ones in a way that will get your toes tapping as Rabbi Steven Wernick and Rabbi Robyn Fryer Bodzin offer insights into our Torah reading, expertly chanted by Lorne Hanick. Come to be a part of our special musical and spiritual davening
