Cantor Ben is the newest member of our clergy to join the Beth Torah leadership. Previously, he was the cantor at Shaar Shalom Synagogue in Thornhill for fourteen years. Cantor Ben strongly believes in the importance of having the congregation join together in prayer services and has selected melodies to ensure this communal harmony. He also takes great pride in fostering the growth and well-being of our children, instilling in them the joy of prayer and music.
What drew him to the profession of cantor? No doubt his love of singing and teaching. But it was also his interest in being a member of the clergy who can share in our members’ good times- Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, weddings, and baby namings—as well as the more difficult times.
Cantor Ben has embarked on a personal path of growth that has looked beyond his professional capacity of cantor. He recently went back to school while working full time to get his MBA. When not at BTC, you might find him poring over stocks on the TSX, picking out a great wine to pair with food, working out, or watching the Blue Jays. He is married to Karen who is incredibly supportive ofall that he is and does and recently they welcomed a lovely daughter Emily Brooke into their lives “
