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 will have the honor of serving as the High Holy Days Cantor at Congregation Shaar Ha'Shalom in Houston, Texas this year; and I am very excited about this new opportunity.

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:

My mission is to create and elevate community and spirituality through liturgical music.
