Elana Arian joins our minyan community as she leads us in song and worship with Rabbi Jaime Aklepi

Elana Arian is one of the leading voices in contemporary Jewish music. A composer, multi-instrumentalist, prayer leader and recording artist, Elana inspires communities across the country with her soulful songwriting and spirit. Her work has been included in many Transcontinental Music publications, and her compositions are sung in synagogues, summer camps and spiritual communities across the world.

Elana has released three albums of original music and is thrilled to be working on her fourth. She has performed at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Tanglewood and, perhaps most memorably, five separate appearances at the Obama White House. We are thrilled to welcome her to our Saturday Morning Minyan, where we regularly sing her beautiful melodies.


Join us all weekend and feed your soul!
