Meet Our New Student Cantor

In anticipation of our new Student Cantor's visit on September 9th, we thought that we should share this "hello" post from her:

"Hello, everyone! I am so excited to meet you all soon in person. I'm Tamara Wolfson, a fourth-year cantorial student at HUC-JIR, and I am thrilled to be joining the TE Roanoke community this year! I grew up in Scarsdale, NY, just half an hour outside of New York City. I attended Temple Israel Center of White Plains, where I fell in love with Jewish music while working with my cantor, Jacob Mendelson. He inspired me through his example, and I wouldn't be who I am today without his guidance! On the off chance I'm not at school or doing homework, you can usually find me practicing guitar, reading a great book, or trying to memorize all of the lyrics to the musical Hamilton."
