Musical Shabbat Worship with Artist-in-Residence Noah Aronson

Congregation Emanu El will welcome the talented Noah Aronson as an 'Artist-in-Residence' the weekend of February 16-18.

Aronson will join Cantor Rollin Simmons, the Shabbatones and youth choir for a musical Shabbat worship experience on Friday, February 16 at 6pm. The Shabbat service will be followed by an Oneg hosted by the Inclusion Committee to acknowledge National Jewish Disability & Awareness Month.

On Saturday, February 17 at 10:30am, join Aronson, along with Cantor Simmons and Rabbi Silk for an intimate and soulful Shabbat morning service full of music. We will raise our voices and our spirits with melodies both familiar and new. We look forward to celebrating Shabbat with you!

The weekend will conclude on Sunday, February 18 at 3:15pm as Aronson will perform a free concert as part of Yom Limmud at Emanu El. The concert and the Greater Houston Jewish Federation’s Yom Limmud are generously endowed by the Barish family and The Chair King.

Aronson released his first solo Jewish album in May 2011, and the title song “Am I Awake” was a winner in the New Voices song competition at New CAJE in 2011. His album “Left Side of the Page,” released in 2013, has received widespread acclaim for its musical settings of poetic selections from the Mishkan Tefilah Prayer Book.

Aronson is currently serving as the Creative Director of Sacred Music NY, a nonprofit organization he helped to create that organizes concerts around New York City, bringing together spiritual musicians from diverse backgrounds to inspire interfaith dialogue and social change.

Aronson’s music is now sung in progressive communities and summer camps worldwide and has been included as part of the Cantorial curriculum at the Hebrew Union College’s Debbie Friedman School of Sacred Music in New York City where he currently resides.
