Cantor Roy B. Einhorn recently celebrated his 31st year here at Temple Israel. He came to our synagogue after graduating from Hebrew Union College – Jewish Institute of Religion’s (HUC-JIR) School of Sacred Music in 1983. Cantor Einhorn coordinates the our B’nei Mitzvah Program and teaches in the Frances Jacobson Early Childhood Center, the Religious School, and Teen Education. Cantor Einhorn has produced Shabbat and Passover CD’s that are used in our community as educational tools.
Under Cantor Einhorn’s guidance of the Marilyn and Mike Grossman Caring Community (now known as TI Cares), families are now receiving calls of comfort following a loss, messages of congratulations following a birth or adoption, college students are receiving Chanukah treats, and seniors are the recipients of Purim Mishloach Manot gift packages prepared by the TI Cares team. TI Cares and the TI Technology group launched the Community Google group to nurture relationships and communication among our membership.
For the past ten years, Cantor Einhorn has been a member of the Joint Cantorial Placement Commission. This national commission has representatives from the Union of Reform Judaism, the Hebrew Union College and the American Conference of Cantors. The JCPC establishes policies and procedures while overseeing the placement process for congregations employing cantors.
