Welcome to Chants Encounters.

The name of this site is the same as my Bulletin column at Indianapolis Hebrew Congregation. Here you will find some of those columns as well as new thoughts on Judaism, prayer and music. Also, you will be able to learn traditional chants for the Shabbat and Holy Day service.

I have served Indianapolis Hebrew Congregation since July, 1979. A graduate of the School of Sacred Music of Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion and Chicago Musical College of Roosevelt University, the cantorate is the perfect blend of my love for Judaism and music. My home congregation is Temple Beth Israel in Skokie, Illinois.

Please feel free to leave comments,
