My Personal Cantor

Hi, I'm Cantor Debbi

You’ve probably come in search of a way to “do Jewish” in your very own way, and you’re right where you need to be.  I’m the warm, welcoming spiritual leader that believes that Jewish engagement should be on your terms, in your way – meaningful, inclusive, and relevant.

 

Welcome, I’d love to be YOUR Personal Cantor.

For 20 years, I’ve served self-directed families as their personal clergy. I meet my clients where they are, and facilitate meaningful, relevant, inclusive and highly personalized events – in just the way they envision them to be.

I don’t subscribe to rigid rules. I don’t want you to be who you’re not. I’m passionate about serving Jewish/Interfaith couples and families, clients who are working hard to balance faith or include their rituals and traditions in ways that are important to them.

I teach children to allow Judaism and a belief in a higher power to be a positive foundation in their lives. Every day I have the same conversation…..”We just don’t feel like the traditional model works for us. We want something more personalized, more meaningful, and I know exactly what they mean, because I did, too.

Let’s Get In Touch!

Contact me today to discuss innovative ways to connect to Judaism.
