Cantor Jay Frailich was invested as a cantor by the Hebrew Union College, Jewish Institute of Religion in New York and was at the University Synagogue for 40 years. He is now the emeritus cantor there and teaches at the Academy of Jewish Religion. Cantor Lonee Frailich, who followed in her father's footsteps, was ordained in 2011 and is the cantor at Temple Akiba of Culver City. Cantor Bryce Megdal, a gifted composer whose compositions have been shared in many synagogues, is in her last year of cantorial school and will be ordained in May. Cantor Rebekah Mirsky is a prolific composer and founding cantor at Beit T’shuvah. She was ordained in 2010 and now works at the Santa Monica Synagogue and B’nai Horin. They will be accompanied by Mary Lou Basaraba, Grace Church Director of Music Ministries.

Following the concert, attendees are invited to enjoy cookies and coffee with the cantors in the church’s Fireside Room until 1:30 p.m.
