Spiritual Leadership

Cantor Shulie Hersh

Cantor Hersh, a recent graduate of the Academy for Jewish Religion, became Beth Sholom's first-ever cantor in July 2015. She brings diverse experiences to her role as part-time director of the musical component of Beth Sholom's programs and services.

She serves the congregation in various capacities. She conducts the music program for the synagogue's Early Childhood Center; leads the monthly Tot Shabbat program; teaches religious school and adult education; leads the Rosh Chodesh women's group; trains B'nai Mitzvot students; and leads some Shabbat and all holiday services.

Prior to joining Beth Sholom, she served as a cantorial intern at two synagogues in Israel, as a student cantor at Temple Beth El Mekor Chayim in Cranford, N.J., and as head prayer coordinator at Camp Ramah in Wisconsin. She has also helped preteens prepare for the B'nai Mitzvot.

Cantor Hersh is married to Rabbi Jordan Hersh, who is Beth Sholom's full-time rabbi. They met while living and studying in Jerusalem. In her free time she enjoys writing music, as well as cooking, gardening, hiking, traveling and yoga.

Meet Cantor Hersh
Cantor Hersh became part of our Beth Sholom family in July 2015. She first developed a love for Judaism as a young girl, walking to shul with her father every Friday night, anticipating the singing of the beautiful melodies. As the daughter of a rabbi in a small town in New York, the synagogue became her second home. Cantor Hersh is devoted to enriching Beth Sholom's spiritual experience through her deep passion for liturgy and synagogue music.
