Cantor Shana Onigman“Shiru L’adonai shir chadash” - Sing a new song unto God!

I love teaching, learning, and singing in the MJCBY community.

You can usually find me preparing students to become B’nai Mitzvah, teaching classes in the religious school, playing guitar for preschoolers, studying Jewish texts with adults, or baking hallah for our Shabbat evening community dinners in MJCBY’s kitchen.

I received my cantorial training and ordination from Hebrew College in Brookline, MA, and attended Rabbinical School at the Jewish Theological Seminary in Manhattan.

My husband, Matthew, is a piano tuner and technician, and conducts the High Holy Day choir at MJCBY. My eldest child is a student at Smith, studying music and neuroscience, and my son Ilan enjoys accompanying Shabbat evening services on drum, and entertaining the congregation with his slightly modified version of the weekly announcements.

I look forward to singing with you.
