HaZamir Bergen County, Class of ‘12
Conductor, HaZamir Westchester
Everything I do in my life, I can trace back to HaZamir. From singing at all, to pursuing a career in music education, to becoming a young Jewish educator, HaZamir provided me with many of the skills and Jewish knowledge I attribute to my work. I also now conduct my own Chapter of HaZamir alongside those mentors who have literally watched me grow up through HaZamir, learning about how broadly its pluralistic Jewish community spans both here and in Israel. Each year I’m involved with HaZamir, this year being my eleventh, I learn more about myself as a Jew and about the history of the music of our people through sharing this music with the current HaZamirniks and Alumni.
