A Cantor-in-Residence weekend is a wonderful way for your community to benefit from the knowledge, creativity and talents of a guest cantor over a short period of time. Whether your community is a smaller congregation that would benefit from an opportunity to experience the gifts a cantor can offer, or a larger congregation that wants to create a special community-building event, the Cantor-in-Residence weekend is a great way to benefit the entire congregation.

I will collaborate with your clergy and lay-leadership to tailor the weekend to your synagogue's unique needs. In addition to joyful music and inspiring worship, a Cantor-in-Residence weekend may also include masterclasses with your choirs, worship bands, song leaders and service lay leaders. I can lead engaging learning sessions on many topics including cantillation, Torah study, life-cycle, holidays and Jewish music. If your community enjoys expressing joy through Israeli dancing, I can lead dance sessions for all ages and levels of experience.

The culmination of the weekend can be my one-woman-show, Love's Journey, which has been enjoyed by audiences worldwide. The show takes viewers on a wonderful journey through life and love, woven together with Broadway favorites, monologue and beloved American standards.

Together we will craft an unforgettable weekend for your community, that is enriching, exciting, engaging and fun!
