Music at Anshe Emet

Anshe Emet has a rich history of magnificent music featured in our worship, in our celebratory events of the Congregation, and in communal gatherings throughout the year.

In 1940, Cantor Moses J. Silverman became the Cantor (or Hazzan) of the Congregation. The fifth generation of a family of cantors, his command of nusach (liturgical melodies), his thorough musical training, and his fine voice made him famous in the Jewish musical world.

Today, Anshe Emet is blessed and privileged to continue this heritage with our world-renowned Hazzan Alberto Mizrahi. Hazzan Mizrahi renews our musical worship participation with melodies from throughout the Jewish world and his reverence for classical, traditional and contemporary Jewish traditions. His profound musical knowledge, outstanding tenor voice and over 40 years of experience have made him one of the world's leading interpreters of Jewish liturgy and music.

Anshe Emet Live

Anshe Emet Live is a fully participatory service, led by Hazzan Mizrahi and one of the rabbis, welcomes the Shabbat with song and even dance! The Anshe Emet Live Band and Shireinu make the atmosphere lovely and inspiring.


Shireinu is Anshe Emet's volunteer choir. The choir welcomes all adults and performs at Shabbat services, High Holy Days services, and at various public functions throughout the year.  Under the direction of Hazzan Steven Berke, Shireinu brings together those who love to sing both contemporary and classical Jewish music.
