 Hazzan Jeffrey Weber

 

Hazzan Jeffrey Weber was born in Valley Forge, PA, and grew up in Commack, NY.  He began his vocal studies at a young age and continued training in voice and opera with Eleanor Steber at SUNY-Purchase College and the Julliard School.  He entered cantorial school in 2000 and was given a full grant to study at the H. L. Miller Cantorial School at the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York.

Hazzan Weber has a repertoire spanning ten languages and has performed in various synagogues in the New York area, including Park East Synagogue with Moshe Geffen and Yitzchak Helfgot as well as the Park Avenue Synagogue with Cantor David Lefkowitz before considering the cantorate as a lifestyle and career.  Performing for several years regularly with the New York City Opera and the Metropolitan Opera, he has also spent some seasons with the Tanglewood Festival and Lake George Opera.

In the summer of 2012, Hazzan Weber was a soloist at the Berlin Concert Hall with the Cantors’ Assembly, also singing in Poland and Israel.  He can be seen in the documentary film 100 Voices: A Journey Home, highlighting the Cantors’ Assembly Mission to Poland. Adding to his repertoire, he has also performed in the Yom HaShoah program at the Israeli Embassy in Washington, DC, and the Kennedy Center.

Hazzan Weber was a featured artist with the Sarasota Pops Orchestra during the 2013 season at the Sarasota Opera House. He is an active member of Bay Area Cantorial Association (B.A.C.A.) and founded the Washington, DC, chapter of HaZamir.

Hazzan Jeffrey Weber apprenticed at the Sarasota Opera with his wife, Andrea. He has two sons attending high school. The Weber family currently resides in Sarasota.
