The Choir is another way for people to enjoy the fulfillment of working towards and accomplishing something as a group through music. Under the direction of Laura Bagish, the choir holds biweekly rehearsals open to both residents and the community. They perform at weekly Shabbat Friday night services, as well as several of Beit T'Shuvah's fundraisers and concerts in the Jewish community in general. The choir also contributes greatly to Congregation Beit T'Shuvah's High Holiday services, serving as a crucial part of the spiritual liturgical music on all Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur Services.
Being a part of the choir gives residents a place of belonging, a sense of unity, and a source of fellowship within Beit T'Shuvah. Members of the Beit T'Shuvah choir contribute in a meaningful way and engage in artistic expression to bring the community and themselves through a spiritual journey through music. They learn how to express themselves in a non-verbal communicative manner which helps them gain self-esteem and a sense of accomplishment, while learning to be a part of something larger than themselves.
