Cantor Linda Hirschhorn

She has inspired the creation of our orchestra and chorus, which she leads to enhance our monthly Musical Shabbat and High Holy Day services.

In addition to her service leading, Cantor Hirschhorn mentors and guides the b'nai mitzvah students of our congregation to prepare them for their special day.
