Cantor Lisa L. Levine


Cantor Lisa Levine is one of the leading contemporary composers and most accomplished cantors in the entire Reform Movement. Her compositions are sung in worship across North America.Cantor Levine's depth of spirituality and broad liturgical musical knowledge are exceeded only by her boundless energy and enthusiasm. Current and prospective Temple Shalom congregants alike are especially attracted to "Cantor Lisa's" loving work with children, her highly successful outreach worship service for interfaith couples, her caring approach to pastoral services and her Yoga Shalom Jewish yoga worship experience.

Since her investiture in 1989, Cantor Levine has served as cantor for congregations in Dallas, Des Moines, Kansas City, Baltimore and Stamford.

"My vision of worship for Temple Shalom includes three major elements," says Cantor Levine. "Joyful music in many different styles and modes, inclusion of bands, orchestras or small ensembles, youth, teen, adult and professional choirs - the more people, the better! - and cantors and rabbis who move off the bima and into the congregation to get people engaged, excited and involved."

Cantor Levine and her husband, Andy, are the parents of Emily and Louis.
