Colorado Hebrew Chorale
The Colorado Hebrew Chorale is a non-auditioned community choir of mixed voices, under the direction of founder Carol Kozak Ward. Kol Nashim, the women’s choir of the Colorado Hebrew Chorale, is a non-auditioned choir, under the direction of founder Leah Peer. Both choirs rehearse from mid-August through June, at the Hebrew Educational Alliance.
The Colorado Hebrew Chorale’s mission is to preserve, promote, and celebrate the Jewish experience through song. We are committed to using the power of music to foster understanding through education, Jewish community involvement, and multi-cultural outreach.
Together with our treble choir, Kol Nashim, the Colorado Hebrew Chorale welcomes all qualified singers of any race, gender expression, disability or religious affiliation.
Our Statement Regarding
The Israel Hamas War
We Stand With Israel
The Colorado Hebrew Chorale community is devastated by the recent events in Israel and Gaza. We support the state of Israel, and our choirs will continue to rehearse and perform; that is what we can do as musicians. Through music we mourn, and through music we assert visions of a hopeful world.
Baruch Dayan Ha-Emet
The members and alumni of the Colorado Hebrew Chorale’s two choirs mourn the loss of our beloved soprano, Estelle Nadel, who passed away on Tuesday, 11/28/23 due to complications from heart surgery. Estelle began singing with the Chorale in 2005, and continued until two weeks ago. Her experiences as a hidden child in Poland during the second World War are chronicled in her graphic novel, “The Girl Who Sang”.
Services are scheduled for Friday morning, Dec. 1, 2023, 10 a.m. at Mountain View Memorial Park, 3393 Penrose Place, Boulder CO 80301.
May Estelle’s family be comforted together with the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem, and may her legacy endure.
