Interim Cantor

Beth El Fairfield | Fairfield, CT, United States

Posted Date 11/15/2021
Description

Congregation Beth El, a thriving, egalitarian Conservative synagogue located within proximity to NYC in the lovely suburban community of Fairfield, CT, is searching for an innovative, inspirational, and engaging interim Cantor who will connect with our congregation through musical and spiritual programming for all of our members.

 

The Cantor will help us to create an environment in which music enriches our worship and celebrations and invites all congregants to participate in our services. In addition, the Cantor will participate in Torah/Haftarah readings, leading daily minyan when needed, bringing music into our preschool and religious school, tutoring Bnai Mitzvah students, and participating in Jewish life-cycle events.

 

Founded in 1952, our congregation of 250+ families enjoys the best of all worlds for a Jewish professional: an environment small enough for all congregants to benefit from spiritual warmth and close friendships, yet large enough to sustain myriad diverse activities. Among these activities are congregant-led morning minyan services, Friday evening Shabbat services (including a summer beach service on Long Island Sound), and Shabbat morning and holiday services. We also feature a thriving preschool and religious school.

 

Qualifications must include:

  • Ability to co-officiate Shabbat services and festival services with our rabbi;
  • Ability to engage our choir and the community as a whole through participatory tefillah;
  • Prior experience as a Cantorial Soloist;
  • Knowledge of traditional and contemporary Jewish liturgy, including Nusah for Shabbat and the High Holy Days.

 

We are looking to fill this position by January 2022.

Salary and benefits commensurate with experience.
