THE NEW JERSEY CANTORS CONCERT ENSEMBLE is the world’s very first choir of both men and women cantors. Comprised of over twenty hazzanim, the Ensemble is sponsored by the New Jersey Region of the Cantors Assembly and is renowned across the country. Members of the Ensemble include cantors of Conservative, Reform and Reconstructionist synagogues in northern and central New Jersey and beyond. Funds raised at the concerts go toward scholarship assistance for cantorial students at the Jewish Theological Seminary, Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion and the Academy for Jewish Religion. Participants rehearse twice a month, sing in the concerts and drive up to 75 miles to each event. All generously contribute their time and talent without remuneration for rehearsal, performance and travel.
