Conductor Bio:

Cantor Ronit Wolff Hanan began her tenure with HaZamir as a proud parent, when her daughter joined HaZamir North Jersey in 2005. Totally hooked after attending her first Festival as a chaperone, she co-founded HaZamir Bergen County as its coordinator in 2007 and became its conductor in 2012. Cantor Hanan is currently the Music Director at Congregation Beth Sholom in Teaneck, New Jersey, where she co-founded and co-conducts Tzipporei Shalom, the synagogue’s award-winning children’s chorus, with Adina Avery-Grossman. She has become a sought-after authority on Jewish children's choirs, has served on the faculty of the North American Jewish Choral Festival, and is an ongoing resource for choir directors and cantors across the U.S. Ronit holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from New York University and a Masters in Sacred Music from the Jewish Theological Seminary, where she was invested as a hazzan in 2012.
