Community Chorus

A Besere Velt – A Better World – is proud to be a “voice” for justice. This 60-member community chorus weaves the heartache and irrepressible idealism of Yiddish folk music into a vision of justice and humanity for the 21st century. From haunting melodies to workers’ anthems, the songs come alive with multi-layered harmonies.

Music, Arts & Culture

Our connection to thousands of years of Jewish culture shapes and enriches our Jewish community today. The sounds, the tastes, the humor, and the language have deep emotional resonance whether we identify as religious or secular Jews, and are lasting sources of inspiration and creativity.
