       Hebrew school musical enrichment, Jewish family concerts, singalongs, Tot Shabbat, Chanukah parties. I bring a repertoire of Hebrew and Yiddish songs, Israeli folk songs and songs by contemporary American Jewish composers, as well as a background of teaching Jewish music in camps and schools dating back to the 1980’s.

         Music has always been a vital part of Jewish life, through joys and sorrows, marking life’s passages, celebrations and changes. Passing along this rich tradition to the next generation is both a responsibility and a privilege.

        I taught music for 10 years at Bet Torah Religious School in Mount Kisco, New York. Currently I spend my Sunday mornings providing musical enrichment at Temple Beth El’s Hebrew School in Stamford, Ct.
