Shabbat Koleinu with Josh Goldberg

Shabbat Koleinu 8-30-2019

On a very special Shabbat Koleinu we welcomed cantorial student and composer Josh Goldberg for an evening musical worship featuring some of his beautiful original compositions.

Josh Goldberg is a singer, songwriter, producer and cantorial soloist. He has performed with Grammy-Award winning musicians Macy Gray, Lamont Dozier and Melissa Manchester, and toured internationally with renowned Jewish musicians Craig Taubman, Rick Recht and Mikey Pauker. Josh created his own record label and production company, Kosher Style Records. He is currently the Music Director at Open Temple in Venice, CA, and is studying to be a cantor at the Academy for Jewish Religion.

Born and raised in Dallas, Texas, Josh started performing at a young age, participating in musical theater productions, and playing original music in local venues around town. He attended Arts Magnet High School, where he studied music, and then went on to graduate from University of Southern California’s renowned Thornton School of Music, in the Popular Music program.

Josh released a self-titled EP in 2012, and followed up with a full-length album called ONE, which was released in 2016 and features 13 original songs and settings to Jewish prayers.

Here are a few examples of his wonderful music:
