Women’s Path to the Cantorate

  • Date: Thursday, March 30, 2023
  • Time: 7:00pm8:30pm

Teacher: Cantor Kelly Cooper

From Miriam to Barbara Ostfeld, we will trace the path that women took to get to the bimah in this two-class course. We will explore the environment that allowed Jewish women to finally have their voices heard including the influence of Yiddish theater and vaudeville. Finally, we will learn about the chazantes, women who sang chazzanut, forbidden cantorial music, further opening the door for women to enter the cantorate.
