Celebrating Cantor Croen


Celebrate our senior cantor as she retires after nearly three decades with Temple Sinai

Cantor Croen will begin a well-deserved retirement this coming summer.

  • How to mark such a momentous change in our community?
  • How to thank and honor our first-ever ordained cantor and longest-serving clergy member?
  • How to celebrate the heart and soul of music at Temple Sinai, who has meant so much to so many?
Answer: Multiple celebrations! Mark your calendars for these events, scheduled for the closing months of Cantor Croen’s career with our temple.

Support Temple Sinai’s music programming by becoming a member of the 2023 Circle of Music Lovers.  With this year’s special campaign, we are raising funds in honor of Senior Cantor Laura Croen that will help continue her legacy of great music at Temple Sinai in the coming years. We invite you to link your gift to a personal message of appreciation and congratulations to Cantor Croen, to be published in a printed commemorative booklet.

This dynamic duo joins with our choir and special guest musicians to engage our souls on a tour of richly diverse cantorial music, from classic to contemporary, from listening pieces to singalongs. Experience where we’ve come from and where we’re going!
