Cantor Josée Wolff

Cantor Josée Wolff is delighted to be working with Temple Sholom of Floral Park as its Spiritual Leader. After being an ordained cantor for over twenty years, this is her first experience in the role of sole clergy. Cantor Wolff is an exceptional teacher and a wonderful spiritual leader. She is also a lot of fun. When we pray or study with her-and we do this in many different ways and at a variety of locales in- and outside the synagogue building-we know that we can count on her as an enthusiastic guide. Her own zest and joy in being Jewish inspire us, as she guides us into a more extensive and deeper knowledge of our Jewish heritage. When she is not at the Temple or teaching cantorial students in New York and Berlin, connecting with friends, spending time in nature and gardening upstate keep her busy and happy. Since the members of her immediate family are located all over the globe and speak different languages, she is a whiz at Skype, Facetime, Viber, Whatsapp-any number of ways of communicating across the globe.
