Ani Kinor: The RS Orchestra

Ani Kinor: the RS Orchestra is Rodeph Shalom's mini-orchestra and a feature of select Friday evening Shabbat Services during the year. "Ani Kinor" is a Hebrew phrase, taken from the beloved Naomi Shemer’s song “Yerushalayim Shel Zahav,” meaning "I am a stringed instrument.” The strings of Ani Kinor help our prayers, joy and musical expression soar. Come hear and experience the power of strings and feel how each of us can be a "stringed instrument" in worship.
