The choir is for anyone aged 4 to 12 years old and has been singing at the Erev Shabbat services for over 30 years. It is now quite common for a member of the choir to be the child of previous members of the choir, which gives the community an enormous sense of continuity.
In addition to the wonderful spirit that their singing brings to our services, children in our choir build their confidence, learn teamwork, and have a lot of fun learning Jewish music with friends.
Rehearsals are on Friday from 17:30-18:00, and the choir helps to lead monthly Friday night Shabbat services.

The Alyth Youth Singers
AYS is open to anyone aged 13 to 18 who loves to sing and has been a vibrant part of the Synagogue’s youth activities since 1981 when it was formed. It is a great opportunity for our young members to make lifelong friends and to engage with their Judaism in a fun and meaningful way. Singing in a choir helps to promote empathy and teamwork and boosts confidence.
The past eight years have been full of exciting concerts in the UK and trips abroad. The choir has sung in Amsterdam, Berlin, Budapest, Dublin, Israel, New York, Paris and Prague, taking their music to schools, hospitals and nursing homes.
In London they have sung at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, the Festival Hall, at Trafalgar Square for Simcha on the Square; the Round House; the Victoria and Albert Museum and they regularly sing for Barnet Council’s Holocaust Memorial Day commemoration at The Quadrangle in Hendon. They sing at the Erev Shabbat service at the synagogue every month and for countless concerts and events throughout the year.
Rehearsals are on Wednesday from 18:45 – 20:00.
