Cantors have been integral to Jewish life for over 2500 years.
Cantors give voice to the dreams and aspirations of our people through musical interpretation of Jewish liturgy.
Cantors craft a consistent, musical identity for each of our communities through an intricate blend of ancient chant, musical artistry and modern melody.
Cantors shepherd both families and individuals through all the joys and heartbreaks of the Jewish lifecycle with compassion and sensitivity.
Cantors engage children and adults alike with compelling learning opportunities.
Cantors eagerly collaborate with our clergy partners.
Cantors are trained professionals, supported in community and excellence by the Cantors Assembly.
Cantors are leaders whose primary mission is to ensure that our 21st century Jewish communities will thrive.

Cantors are masters of the Jewish musical and liturgical tradition and a crucial link between that tradition and the Jews they serve. It is hard to imagine our shul without our cantor's influence, care, mastery and wisdom.
