Cantor Dara Rosenblatt


Dear Beth-El Hebrew School Parents,

With the High Holy Day season behind us, I wanted to take this opportunity to more formally introduce myself. I am Cantor Dara Rosenblatt, and as the new Cantor at Temple Beth-El I am so excited to learn, pray, and make music with your children at the Hebrew School!


Over the course of this year I will be leading T’filah with your children on Wednesdays and Sundays. Rabbi Knopf, Ramona, and I have been discussing a new T’filah plan and look forward to implementing some new elements to our prayer experience for the children. You are always welcome to join us for T’filah at the school on Sunday mornings at 11:30AM*, and I also encourage you to join us at Beth-El on Grove Avenue for services, Monday and Thursday morning at 7AM, as well as on Shabbat. Our Shabbat Mincha service, typically around 1:30PM on Saturday, is a great (short) service for kids too. We would love to have you with us for any of these you may be able to attend.


In addition to our T’filah, I will be teaching the sixth-graders Torah and Haftarah cantillation this spring in preparation for their B’nai Mitzvah. I’m looking forward to teaching trope (cantillation) and getting to know the students that will soon be preparing to become a Bar/Bat Mitzvah in the coming year. And, if you yourself are interested in learning how to chant Torah, be on the lookout for more information about how to learn in an adult education class this spring.


I look forward to seeing you soon at Parham and/or at Grove. Join me for a “Meet and Greet” with coffee and donuts on Sunday, October 21st from 9AM-9:30AM in the Parham School lobby. In addition, please don’t hesitate to be in touch to introduce yourself, and/or if you have any questions about my role at the Hebrew School.

May this year be a fabulous one with great learning, music, and smiles!

Best wishes, Cantor Dara Rosenblatt

*Please note T’filah will take place on alternating Sundays and Wednesdays. Check the school e-news for T’fillah dates.
