Eliana Sings (About Jewish Things!)

The new album for kids, families, and everyone 

MEANINGFUL MUSIC.

Eliana's songs engage with Jewish holidays, history, language, prayer, and Torah, all with a midrashic, interpretive, spin. This music is full of content, and inspires others to take Torah into their own hands and interpret for themselves. A concert with Eliana is engaging, empowering, and of course, enlightening.

About Eliana 

 

Everything Eliana does stems from a deep passion for Jewish life and learning. 

Song-leading, song-writing, prayer leading, educating... It's all directed from one heart and towards one goal:

To help individuals discover themselves within the depth and richness of Jewish life, and to take ownership of their Judaism.  

Raised in Memphis, TN on soul music and synagogue life, Eliana has led programs and performed all across the country.

She currently lives in New York City, where she is the Music Educator at B'nai Jeshurun. She graduated the Jewish Theological Seminary with a Masters in Experiential Jewish Education in 2016. While in NYC, Eliana has worked with other amazing organizations including Park Avenue Synagogue, the JCC of Manhattan, Romemu, The New Shul, and Lab/Shul.

A New Light

by Eliana Light

Eliana received the Jewish Education Project's Young Pioneer's Award in 2017. This video highlights her work at Park Avenue Synagogue, and how music can engage everyone from young to old, from early childhood to teens and everyone in between. 

Sing along with me and the amazing folks at NewCAJE7! Featuring a blush-worthy introduction from the one and only Ellen Allard, and the songs B'ruchim Ha'baim, 4 Mitzvot 4 Purim, the Yad Song, and Shalom Everybody.

What happens when the way we talk about God no longer works? Eliana Light looks at how the ways we think and talk about God as kids can limit--and sometimes even cut off--that very important relationship as we grow older and life becomes more complicated.

The Talmud tale of Achnai's oven, told in cartoon and ballad form. Written and performed by Eliana, illustrated and animated by Stu Sufrin, and brought to you by Studio G-dcast.
