A Thank You From Cantor Weiss

As cantor of Temple Emanuel of Beverly Hills, I live the most meaningful life I can imagine – a life dedicated to helping others connect to their spirituality through music and torah. There is no other career where I could use my heart, soul, body, and mind so fully. I am privileged to walk alongside people through the most joyful and painful moments of life – weddings and funerals, baby dedications and illnesses – and bring them solace and joy through song and sound. As your cantor, I am able to help people make sense of traditional texts and song, and to both pass on tradition and invent new meaning through music.  Thank you for partnering with me to enrich our musical experience.

Thank You From Us

We believe in the power of love and community, and we are deeply grateful for any amount you are able to contribute to help us reach our goals. Thank you for helping us sing the world alive!
