Chizuk Amuno Congregation

Hazzan Search

As we inch further into fall, the cantorial placement season will soon be in full swing, officially opening on November 1st. The search committee was able to use the summer months to remain quietly active – fine-tuning the language in our application, re-examining the position description, and closely studying the cantorial landscape. The committee is enthusiastic and ready for the work ahead.
Where we need the support of you, the members of our Chizuk Amuno community, is to identify any potential candidates for the position. Should you encounter a Hazzan who you think might be a good match for our congregation, please reach out at
And a note about a change in our committee leadership – Antony Rosen’s profound wisdom and thoughtful insight were a vital component in our committee’s work last year. However, so that he may return his full attention to his
work outside of Chizuk Amuno, he has stepped away as co-chair. We are grateful that Joel Suldan has been willing to step in, moving forward, joining our dedicated, untiring, and continuing co-chair, Jenny Gamliel. Joel’s deep understanding of our community and extensive prior work around the role of music at Chizuk Amuno are a critical asset, joining Jenny’s extensive leadership and involvement throughout the congregation and schools. We thank them both for their willingness to lead our important search.
