Natan Berenshteyn
Music Director and Accompanist
 

“In the Jewish tradition,” Natan Berenshteyn says, “without music, there is no service. Jewish services are not read—they’re chanted.”

Bringing the musical tradition of our ancestors into worship services is precisely what Berenshteyn does as the music director for Beth Ahabah. “I am involved in everything that has the word music in it,” he says.

It takes a lot of scheduling and logistics—and rehearsing, rehearsing, rehearsing. He plans the “musical menu” for services that feature the children’s choir, adult volunteer choir, the professional choir, and the cantorial soloist, and ensures that everyone has their music in hand when it’s time to start practicing.
