Music Programming

We encourage our congregants and visitors to fully participate in the diverse music of our worship services and our wider community. Congregation Beth Ahabah is proud to offer a beautiful and comprehensive music program, including our annual Shabbat Shirah (Jewish Music Shabbat) and Global Jewish Music Shabbat, as well as periodic educational classes for all ages, concerts, and more. 

We warmly invite you to join us in making music and friendships that will last a lifetime. Please contact Cantor Sarah Beck-Berman by email or through the Temple office at (804) 358-6757 ext. 317 if you would like to learn more about current music programming or become involved.

20 Years of Songs: The Music of Natan Berenshteyn

In celebration of our talented Music & Choral Director, Natan Berenshteyn, the congregation sponsored this album of his original Shabbat compositions. Recorded on-site in our historic Sanctuary, the album features Natan Berenshteyn on piano, and Cantor Sarah Beck-Berman singing. 

This CD is still available; click here to order your digital or physical copy with our online form, or to preview the album.
