“Elana joined us for our Sukkot celebration and graced our community with her warmth, creativity and superb musicianship.  She is a major talent, completely engaging, touched our hearts and lifted our souls. Sukkot with her was truly z’man simchateinu- the season of our rejoicing.”

“Elana enchanted every member of our community from Pre-K to adults with her warm presence, invitational singing style, and refreshing musical interpretations of our sacred text. In particular, Elana spoke to our 20s/30s through her music and teaching, demonstrating her special gift of outreach to [often marginalized] members of our community whom we so deeply wish to engage. Elana is relatable and gracious, and her musical talent is singular. We look forward to many more musical and prayerful collaborations with her.”

“We had the pleasure of hosting Elana Arian as a guest artist for a Selichot program last year. Though I knew she would be wonderful, I could not have expected how thrilled everyone in our community was with the program! She was passionate and engaging, and truly captured exactly what we were looking for. With it being Selichot, Elana balanced an introspective and uplifting program while paying close attention to the awe-filled nature of the holiday. Most of all, Elana is a mensch, through and through. Working with her from start to finish is a pleasure and is just so easy. I have no doubt that she is one of the greatest Jewish voices of our time. I look forward to working with her again in the future.”

“Elana elevated our Sukkot celebration with her unparalleled musicality and wise spirit. The ease with which she embraced our community left all of us rejoicing and deeply inspired. She made a lasting imprint on our hearts - we can’t wait to have her back soon!”
