Chant: Beyond
The Veil

Chant: Beyond the Veil, turns its gaze on chant. Hebrew phrases repeat against an imaginative bed of acoustic and electronic soundscapes enriched by the CBH string ensemble, chant participants, guitar, oud and even mountain dulcimer. It’s a heart-expanding, intimate passage through a collection of chants arranged and led by CBH music director Gayanne Geurin and producer Will Robertson. Chant: Beyond the Veil is the fourth and final release in CBH’s recording series, The Merkavah Project. Chant with it, use it as a meditation tool or just listen. Let it take you more deeply into yourself and draw you into a sacred space that is beyond words, beyond the veil of everyday time.

Full Cold Moon:
Songs of Comfort and Reflection

Full Cold Moon: Songs of Comfort and Reflection brings together songs and poetry reflecting the two sides of the inevitable universal passage through difficult times. Grief is the deep winter of our emotions, yet it’s also a time of seeking comfort and nurturing hope. The moon in Jewish tradition reminds us of the promise of restoration. Congregation Bet Haverim offers this collection to help illuminate the journey through loss and to provide a space for reflection on meaningful themes like those of the Yizkor service at Yom Kippur.

Fire Flashing Up is the first CD by Congregation Bet Haverim’s homegrown string ensemble. The eight tunes presented here offer a potent mix of expressive melodies, poignant harmonies and joyful rhythms. Six are traditional klezmer tunes from Eastern Europe; two are klezmer-spiced tangos from Argentina; and all are performed by members of the congregation in arrangements created expressly for the CBH Strings.

Wheels Within Wheels

Wheels Within Wheels deepens the musical experience created at Congregation Bet Haverim by lifting the veil between the ordinary and the sacred, so that our earthy expression of musical holiness connects with the celestial resonance of the universal. Like Ezekiel’s mystical vision, the spirals of harmonies, voices and instruments evoke contemplation, awe and celebration. At times Wheels Within Wheels will transport you to an intimate experience with your innermost self, and at other times it will convey a profound connection with the world around you.

The  Threshing Floor

The Threshing Floor offers Jewish music from distant lands and times alongside works from other 
traditions and songs composed and arranged by members of our own chorus. Feed your soul on Jewish 
music from the Mediterranean, India, Eastern Europe and Uganda, as well as inventive renditions of psalms 
and festival liturgies. The life rhythms of The Threshing Floor beat with a blues adaptation of Lamentations, 
Hasidic and poetic love songs and a stirring arrangement of an REM song. 
 
In the Bible, the threshing floor was a place that drew people together. Villagers brought their crops to this 
circle of packed earth or paving stones at harvest to separate the grain from the chaff. The threshing floor 
was the setting for many of life’s most important cycles and several biblical stories. More than just an 
everyday place, the threshing floor transformed over time into something sacred: King David purchased one 
in Jerusalem to serve as a sacred altar, which became the foundation for the first Temple.
