Our Spiritual Leader

Cantor Bessman comes to us most recently from Fort Myers, Florida, where he served as cantor for Temple Beth El. He graduated from the H.L. Miller Cantorial School of the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York with diplomas in Hazzan and Master of Arts in Sacred Music. He also earned a master’s in Jewish Education from the William Davidson Graduate School. Having considerable experience working in traditional and liberal congregations, Cantor Bessman is comfortable with Conservative and Reform liturgies.
