“We are not merely singing melodies—this is the point. A niggun is a path to God, a “song of ascension.”
But we must set out along that path! We must travel with that intention in mind. If you’re not yet ready to sing God a new song, then sing an old one. Get together with friends, tell stories, swap songs. Soak in the niggunim. See how far they can take you.”- Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi
Kol Tikvah is more than a choir, it is the voice of our congregation. When they sing it enhances our prayer experience, bringing us to new heights.
