Sisters and Misters

A group of passionate musicians dedicated to leading soulful prayer throughout Los Angeles. 

Sisters and Misters is two sisters and their misters, on a mission to spread original soulful music of all streams throughout their communities.  The band is made up of Ariel Root Wolpe, her sister Kendra Root Wolpe, Ariel's husband Jon Mitchell and Kendra's partner Adam Oliveras.  Sisters and Misters perform original folk music in Jewish and secular spaces throughout Los Angeles. 

Sisters and Misters Jewish services include energetic instrumentation, participatory singing, and the sacred words of sages past and present to craft a Shabbat or weekday experience of connection and celebration. Their prayers merge traditional and contemporary music and prayer, resulting in an authentic and accessible experience for people of all backgrounds. By pairing chasidic melodies with sephardic  tunes, in addition to prayer compositions original and learned, Sisters & Misters turns each step of prayer into a climb towards our highest selves and a musical taste of God's presence in our lives. 

Sisters & Misters is led by Ariel Root Wolpe, a Jewish songwriter and rabbinical student at American Jewish University.
