Saul Kaye has been leading the "Power Hour" at Beth Jacob for over 5 years, and he brings a unique mixture of spiritual engagement and incredible talent to our community. Through beautiful music and an amazing ability to read the energy of the room, Saul has helped to bring many people to the Shabbat experience who otherwise had not found their connection. Working with him is a true joy.

""Saul indeed has a God given talent, developed through a tremendous investment of time and energy. That Divine gift he used for the great blessing of our Jewish community as well as our Christian and Muslim neighbors for an 'Open the Gates: Jewish Blues Concert & Interfaith Dessert Reception' in Galveston. Such efforts are all the more pressing now that the always present bigotry of our world has bubbled to the surface and is staring us in the face. We cannot turn aside nor look away. We have to deal with it and Saul's music -- mixing things that don't ordinary go together to make something even more beautiful -- is a great vehicle by which to drive home positive change!"

'Mr. Saul Kaye of San Francisco, California, brought his enthusiastic, yet laid back personality and his blues sensibility and spiritual openness to Temple Sholom of Chicago. It was great to have his artistic and spiritual gifts enhance our Shabbat. Highly recommended!'

'When I invited Saul to lead a Kabbalat Shabbat service at my synagogue, I knew that the peace of Shabbat would descend upon us. He’s been with us a couple of times already, but when I heard his new recording of South African inspired tunes, I felt that we had to have him back. His musicianship and ability to lead a meaningful tefillah are both profound. He engaged us with community singing, spiritual teachings, beautiful melodies, and virtuosic guitar playing. '
Rarely does Jewish music produce an artist with both impeccable blues chops and the kavanah of a Hassid. Kaye fits that odd bill, and we’re better off for it.'
