Larchmont Temple has a long tradition of providing Jewish musical experiences for every congregant, young and old. Our children learn traditional and new Jewish songs for every holiday and occasion whether they are in Nursery School, KESHER, or our post-b'nai mitzvah programs. Adult music lovers have an opportunity to join our choir or our volunteer band. Whether you sing, play an instrument, or just listen, music is an integral part of our Larchmont Temple community.
