The Zimriyah is Congregation Beth Israel’s junior choir, comprised of singers attending the Haberkorn Religious School, from 2nd to 6th grade. The Zimriyah performs a variety of Jewish songs for several celebrations throughout the year at CBI. In addition, it occasionally, represents CBI in the community. Through music, singers learn, sing, develop friendships, and perform with confidence as an engaged member of their congregation.
