She eventually enrolled at the Academy for Jewish Religion, and was ordained in May 2014, along with receiving a Masters in Jewish Studies from Gratz College. During this time she twice received the Rabbi Timoner Award for her musical compositions. She served as cantorial intern at Temple Beth Shalom in Hastings-on-Hudson (and was a religious school teacher there for several years), and as the Cantor of Temple Beth Sholom in Flushing NY. As a classically trained singer and lover of classic rock and folk music, Cantor Horowitz is equally comfortable with the great masters of Jewish hazzanut and contemporary participatory repertoire.
Cantor Horowitz is married to Marty Morell, an international development specialist and avid musicologist; their daughter Sara currently attends Swarthmore College.
