Cantor Erica Lippitz

Cantor Emerita

In 1987 the JTS invested two women as cantors for the first time in the history of the Conservative movement; Cantor Erica Lippitz was one of those first two.  When she was hired by Oheb Shalom that same year, Cantor Lippitz began weaving together the strands of traditional prayer with the innovative sounds of American Jewish music. Cantor Lippitz is the  founder of the 50-voice Kol Dodi Jewish community choir, and served as its director for many years. She also served as director of Oheb Shalom's adult and children's choirs during her tenure from 1987-2021.
