In 2007 she co-founded HaZamir Bergen County as its coordinator and became its conductor in 2012. Born in Tel Aviv but raised in New York, she is currently the Music Director at Congregation Beth Sholom in Teaneck, New Jersey, where she co-conducts Tzipporei Shalom, the synagogue’s award-winning children’s chorus, with Adina Avery-Grossman. She is also a veteran of musical comedies, revues, operettas, cabaret and jazz clubs in the U.S. and Israel, has produced pop songs and jingles for Israeli national radio, is the featured vocalist on numerous Jewish children’s recordings, and has recorded a solo CD entitled T’filateinu – Songs and Reflections for the High Holy Days. She has served on the faculty at the North American Jewish Choral Festival and sings with the Zamir Chorale.
