The New Shul

www.newshul.org [cached]

The New Shul was co-founded by Holly Gewandter & Ellen Gould, close friends & theatre collaborators.
So I said to my closest friend and collaborator, Ellen Gould, "How hard do you think it would be to start a shul?" Jen Krause, a rabbinic student who had committed her considerable talents to help create what was to become The New Shul, led the service with Ellen, a gifted singer and actress, playing the role of cantor. Then Ellen started chanting/teaching an old Hasidic nigun, and within moments something amazing happened - we sounded like a community that had been praying together for years. by Ellen Gould, co-founder From the beginning, Ellen Gould's mission as Musical Director/Cantor has been to make the New Shul a singing community. "We don't have a choir, we are the choir." Says Ellen, "I don't need the attention of a solo singer -- I've been a performing professional for most of my life. In the world of theater, Ellen is best known for her double Emmy award-winning musical "Bubbe Meises, Bubbe Stories. Following the Off-Broadway run and national tour of "Bubbe Meises," Ellen continued to perform the show for Jewish organizations and synagogues throughout the U.S. This experience renewed her interest in Jewish communal life. It also raised the question -- "why can't modern ritual be as transformative as theatre? In 1999, Ellen co-founded The New Shul (with long-time friend and musical collaborator Holly Gewandter) where she continues to work on the answer. A native of Worcester, Massachusetts, Ellen is a graduate of Brandeis University, has an MFA in Acting from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts and was the recipient of a Fulbright-Hayes fellowship in ethnomusicology.

"We don't have a choir, we are the choir." Says Ellen, "I don't need the attention of a solo singer -- I've been a performing professional for most of my life. My goal is to share with the community the joy of full-throated and full-hearted expression of the spirit that can only come through the use of its own voice." In the world of theater, Ellen is best known for her double Emmy award-winning musical "Bubbe Meises, Bubbe Stories. Her many other performance credits include leading roles in productions from Lincoln Center to The Public Theatre, as well as featured roles on HBO, PBS-TV, and NPR.

The New Shul was co-founded by Holly Gewandter and Ellen Gould, close friends and theatre collaborators.
So I said to my closest friend and collaborator, Ellen Gould, "How hard do you think it would be to start a shul?" Many of you know the story. You received the invitation and came to that first Friday night Shabbat service at HUC. None of us quite knew what to expect. But people came. Jen Krause, a rabbinic student who had committed her considerable talents to help create what was to become The New Shul, led the service with Ellen, a gifted singer and actress, playing the role of cantor. Then Ellen started chanting/teaching an old Hasidic nigun, and within moments something amazing happened -- we sounded like a community that had been praying together for years.
