In 2012 Lucy began her pursuit of a life-long dream to become a cantor. Since then she has had the privilege to receive the Tisch-Star Cantorial fellowship for the class of 2017 and has been honored to serve many wonderful communities. These include Congregation Rodeph Sholom, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Central Synagogue and Congregation B'nai Jeshurun where she served as Cantorial Intern for 3 years until being named Assistant Cantor in 2017.
She proudly continues to serve there as Cantor today.
Lucy received her BA in Religious/Jewish Studies from Trinity College in Hartford, CT in 2009. Her undergraduate thesis addressed the intersection of Sufi and Jewish mystical practices in the Middle Ages.
After spending a summer at URJ Camp Eisner, Lucy was inspired to begin her studies as a Religious Educator. She received a certificate in Israel Education from the iCenter and her MA in Religious Education in the spring of 2017. Lucy's passion for Israel and Israeli music led her to her masters thesis & recital; "HaTishma Koli: Voices of Biblical Women in Israeli Popular Music." Lucy was ordained as Cantor that same spring.
Lucy currently lives in Maplewood, NJ with her husband, Eli and her daughter, Willa. They enjoy cooking all kinds of cuisine and taking walks with their adorable dog, Bernie.
