The Kol Amites!

The Kol Amites are a treasure. These musicians add enormous spiritual depth to our services. This piece is a melody composed by Nava Tehila, a Jerusalem-based musical group (and a synagogue in Jerusalem.) Kol Ami appreciates Nava Tehila allowing us to perform their music. More about them is at Nava Tehila
