Born Goetz Gustav Ksinski in Bochum, Gershon Kingsley, as he later became, left Germany for Palestine in 1938, working first on a kibbutz before studying music in Jerusalem. In 1946 he moved to the United States, where he was later able to experiment with new forms of synagogue music, making use of electronic sounds.

Vocal Music

Kingsley’s Voices from the Shadow sets poems by victims of the Nazi concentration camps. His Jazz Psalms were commissioned for a New York synagogue. Shabbat for Today is a revolutionary contribution to music for Reform Judaism, making use of contemporary popular idioms. Shiru Ladonai is a kabbalat shabbat and Sabbath eve service, again using synthesised orchestration.
