Scholar-in-Residence Weekend – Friday, Dec. 13 – Saturday, Dec. 14
Join us for a special dramatic and musical weekend!
Rabbi Cantor Hillary Chorny of Temple Beth Am in Los Angeles, CA will be our guest. Hillary completed her cantorial investiture, rabbinical ordination, and a Masterʼs degree in Sacred Music at the Jewish Theological Seminary before joining the staff of Temple Beth Am in 2014. Raised in San Diego, CA, she grew up with a deep attachment to the Conservative Jewish community. In 2008, Hillary graduated American University in Washington, D.C. with a B.A. in Jewish studies and a minor in vocal jazz performance. After working as a Judaics instructor and music director in various Jewish communities and camps, Hillary pursued her dream of becoming a cantor. In time, she was inspired by her teachers and family to also pursue the rabbinate.
