Kol Hai means All Life

Based in New York's mid-Hudson Valley (Lenapehoeking), Kol Hai serves a spiritual community rooted in Jewish Renewal teachings and a reverence of Hebrew language and texts. On a larger scale, Kol Hai creates music and educational offerings for a global community of people interested in Jewish music and spiritual practice. The binding thread is our music, weaving new melodies, ancient rhythms, and riveting harmonies. Kol Hai's events and offerings are directed by the artistic and spiritual leadership of Rabbi Shir Yaakov Feit.

Kol Hai also functions as a musical duo including Rabbi Shir Yaakov and Kohenet Renee Finkelstein (aka Radharani) who brings harmonies and her own original melodies. 

Kol Hai in the New Paltz Times

...you don’t have to be Jewish to love what [Kol Ḥai is] doing — nor, indeed to come to participate in the services and learn about the deep meanings of the ancient Hebrew mystical tradition and how group practice, facilitated by song, can foster what Feit calls “transformative spirituality.”
