“A truly beautiful song makes the melody and words feel like an organic whole even as it integrates and is influenced by the overtones and rhythms of a surrounding culture. In Abraham Heschel’s essay ‘The Vocation of the Cantor,’ he talks about music as the soul of language, how the music must not distort or contradict the meaning of a word but enhance and glorify it. A word has a soul and we must learn how to attain insight into its life. Songs should give wings to our prayers, songs should give color to our grief and joy, and songs should express the depths of our greatest yearnings. May you lives be ever full of song. Amen. Selah.”

About the cantor: “I have been a singer since I was nine months old. I became a songwriter at the age of 23 when no song, however passionately I interpreted it, seemed to express adequately my own particular view of the world. I became immersed in the writing of rounds and harmony at the age of 40 when I was asked to teach music for a women’s prayer service at one of the first Jewish women’s conferences ever organized (in the early 1980’s in San Francisco).”+ More... - Less...
