Jennifer Rolnick
I am Jennifer Rolnick and I grew up at Congregation Brith Shalom.  My journey to become a cantor started with my own childhood cantor, David Propis who inspired and encouraged me to sing.  I still remember many of the songs we learned in the Brith Shalom Youth Chorale and am still friends with many of the other choir members.

I studied for 5 years at the Jewish Theological Seminary, including one year in Israel where I had the privilege to sing with the Israeli Philharmonic Orchestra.  In 2017, I completed my studies and received a diploma of Hazzan and Master of Arts in Sacred Music.  

Today, I am a cantor in Baltimore, MD and I recently completed a Master of Arts degree in Jewish Education from Towson University.  I will soon be serving a congregation in the Boston area. 

Thank you for your support of Women’s League and the Jewish Theological Seminary.  You helped me to achieve my dream!
