Cantor Alan Sokoloff of Temple Emanuel of the Pascack Valley in Woodcliff Lake attended the Hadar Singing Communities Intensive from December 24 to 27 in Manhattan. The event was led by Joey Weisenberg.
Hadar is an educational institution that seeks to empower a generation of Jews to create and sustain vibrant egalitarian communities.
“This music program enabled me to experience the depth of Jewish music, study traditional melodies, and share in the creative process of bringing new music into being,” Cantor Sokoloff said. “My congregants at Temple Emanuel of the Pascack Valley are the beneficiaries of my participation in the Singing Intensive, as our services are now enhanced with these beautiful new melodies.”
