Cantor Louise Treitman helped to create the Jewish Music Institute at Hebrew College in the 1980s, which subsequently became the School of Jewish Music (SJM), now the Hebrew College Cantorial Program. She has continued her connection with Hebrew College since then in various capacities—as former associate dean of the School of Jewish Music, and currently as a part-time faculty member in the rabbinic and graduate Jewish education programs and as a teacher, advisor and cantorial coach in the cantorial program.

Cantor Treitman served Temple Beth David in Westwood for 20 years and is honored to be its cantor emerita. She has served as High Holy Day cantor at Beth Hillel in Rome, Italy, as well as Shir Hadash Firenze, in Florence, both members of the World Union for Progressive Judaism.

With degrees from Wellesley College and the New England Conservatory of Music, she received her certification as an invested cantor through HUC-JIR in New York. Cantor Treitman was the president of the Jewish Ministers Cantors’ Association of New England and the founding president of the New England Board of Cantors. In addition to singing with the Zamir Chorale of Boston, she is co-founder/director of the vocal octet “Il Concerto di Salamone Rossi Hebreo.”
