Cantor Ethan Goldberg began serving the Westchester Jewish Center in the fall of 2014. Ethan grew up near Philadelphia and was nurtured along his Jewish journey by his loving family, Adath Israel, Gratz College, HaZamir and Camp Ramah in the Poconos, where he worked as the music director for seven summers and honed many of the skills he brings to his work. He earned his BA in Music (Voice Performance) and Near Eastern and Judaic Studies at Brandeis University, where he founded and directed a klezmer band, sang with the Zamir Chorale of Boston and was a gabbai of the Traditional Egalitarian minyan. He then attended the H.L. Miller Cantorial School of the Jewish Theological Seminary, where he was privileged to study with talented teachers and fellow students both in New York and Jerusalem, earning cantorial investiture and a Masters of Sacred Music in 2016. He also completed an MA in Jewish Educational Leadership from the Davidson School of Education at JTS in 2020. Ethan’s professional interests include the intersection of Judaic arts and Jewish spirituality, synagogue transformation, music education and Cultural Zionism. His hobbies include listening to and making music, pinball, walking along water, cooking and reading. He is the proud and loving spouse of Cantor Shoshi Levin Goldberg since 2016 and they are the proud parents of two children.
