We Also Welcome Our New Student Cantor Luke Hawley
We enjoyed another lovely Shabbat service and another full house this past Friday night, led once again by our new clergy team. And let's now introduce our new Student Cantor, Luke Hawley.
Luke Hawley is currently in his final year of studies at the Hebrew Union Colllege/Jewish Institute of Religion School of Sacred Music in New York, and lives in Astoria, Queens. He grew up in Northbrook, Illinois and lived in Chicago for about twenty years after studying Art History in college. Luke studied at the Pardes Institute in Jerusalem for two years before entering HUC. Previously he had a career as systems analyst working for companies such as Motorola and Sears. For the past three years he was the student cantor for the Garden City Jewish Center in Garden City, Long Island.
And with that, we issue a warm welcome to Congregation Adas Emuno for our new student cantor. We look forward to hearing your soulful sounds of spirituality throughout the coming year. And for those of you who may have missed the profile of our new rabbi, please see our previous post: Welcome Rabbi Schwartz!
