Updates from the Cantorial Search Committee
December 20, 2019
The search for a new cantor is a serious and holy endeavor. We are proud to represent BHSS as each and every one of us will be affected by its outcome. Our first effort in this process was to choose a diverse group of congregants who would join us as the search committee. We are pleased to announce that everyone has accepted this leadership role and understands the full commitment of this search. They are:
Dara Diamond, Eric Einhorn, Al Levene, Jackie Lowenfels, Al Schlosser, Tai Weiss and Kathy Zukof; ex officio members Rabbi Ilana Schwartzman, Director of Education Rebecca McVeigh, and BHSS president, Judy Teich
During our first meeting in December, the co-chairs entered into a covenant with our committee members. We are honored that the leaders and congregants of BHSS have trusted us with the sacred responsibility of searching for our next cantor. Our application has been submitted to the American Conference of Cantors (ACC) and the committee has started the search.
We will work for the sake of our BHSS community. We will only recommend to our congregation the candidates whom we support with our whole heart. We have big shoes to fill as Cantor Perper has led us so beautifully these past thirteen years. The mantra that “We Love Our Cantor” must ring true for his successor as well!
We are committed to keeping you informed of our progress in this search process. Please check back here for our updates.
