Adult Volunteer Choir

This talented all-volunteer choir leads the congregation in prayer and shares the rich heritage of Jewish music on the High Holy Day services, and special temple and Interfaith events throughout the year. This group is open to all members who love music and enjoy singing. No previous choral experience is required. Contact Cantor {at} and/or our wonderful choir director Edward Alstrom, edalstrom {at}


 Every spring Temple Ner Tamid members compose and perform the story of Queen Esther in a unique way. Parodies of songs made famous by a certain artist, or from a certain time period or genre, are used to act out the Megillah — the story of how Esther saved the Jews of Persia. Each production integrates the tone and style of that time period, or that singer/composer, to make that Megillah a reflection of that particular body of work.

Over the past two decades the Purim story has been told through the music of Broadway, Frank Sinatra, Disney, the Beatles, Motown, Cole Porter, My Fair Lady, Elvis, Woodstock and Country-Western, Guys and Dolls, Burt Bacharach, Disco, Disney (again), Jersey Boys, songs made famous by women, Academy Award winning songs, and Billy Joel. The cast includes more than 40 congregants of all ages, while many other temple members play in the band or work backstage. Several families use this as a cross-generational shared experience since it provides appropriate roles for all ages and appeals to different family members in different ways. Others just attend the performance for the pleasure of watching their friends on stage. Whatever the level of commitment, the evening is enjoyed by all.

Anyone who would like to be involved can contact Gary Rudoren,
