Blessings and Greetings!
I am Cheri Weiss, a Cantorial candidate at the Academy for Jewish Religion in Los Angeles, California with anticipated ordination in May 2018.
I have served congregations throughout Southern California as Cantorial Intern and Guest Cantor, and have been High Holy Days Cantor in Providence, RI and Houston, TX -- all wonderful experiences.
I have the privilege of serving as the founder and choir director of the Shirenu Chorus of Congregation Beth El in La Jolla, CA. We rehearse twice a month and always welcome new members (including those who do not attend Beth El). We begin our rehearsals with a voice lesson (I taught Voice at Palomar College for a number of years). No previous choral or vocal experience is necessary! If you are interested in finding out more about the choir, please contact me: Cheri@Hazzanit.com
My mission is to create and elevate community and spirituality through liturgical music.
