Rabbi Josh Warshawsky
is a pray-er, gatherer, music creator, and lifelong meaning seeker.
He is a nationally touring Jewish musician, songleader, composer, and teacher of Torah. Josh seeks to build intentional praying communities, and travels to synagogues and Jewish communities across the country sharing his music and teachings on prayer and meaningful living. He has released four albums of Jewish music, filled with melodies written intentionally to express the deep meaning of the words of our tradition. His latest album, “Chaverai Nevarech Vol. III,” came out in Spring 2022!
About the Music and Mission
My mission is to help people find a spiritual and meaningful home for themselves in order to live lives filled with purpose. I am guided and motivated by my belief that human beings are spiritual seekers and meaning makers. We can find that meaning through Jewish sacred text and ritual, and in the chain of tradition passed down from generation to generation. These texts and rituals have great power to guide us as we live our lives today, if only we can seek to better understand them and make them our own. Through prayer, through song and harmony, through spirituality, through ritual, through community, and through justice and fairness, the way is illuminated and becomes clear.
