Lev guitar.jpg

Lev is a seasoned service leader who brings life experience, knowledge and wisdom along with beautiful music, meditation, and the teachings of his teachers, Rabbis Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, zt"l, Arthur Green, Sharon Cohen-Anisfeld, Ebn Leader, and Nehemia Polen, to name a few, to the Jewish community. He has officiated at upwards of 60 weddings, many baby namings, brit milah ceremonies, B'nai Mitzvah services and funerals.

Lev has a warm voice and a subtle, sensitive way of playing guitar that helps bring congregations into the music. He believes that everyone is a singer and works wonders with willing participants to create community through music. Lev weaves prayer, kavvanot (teachings and intentionality about prayer) and stories that enliven and deepen the worship experience. He also believes in what Reb Zalman, z"l called "Producer Judaism," meaning that it is up to the community to create the prayer/spiritual experience along with the Shaliach Tzibur, the community prayer leader.
