Cantor Ellen Tilem

Cantor Ellen Tilem

Ellen Tilem knew from a very young age that she wanted to be a Cantor.  In Jewish tradition the Cantor is a musician trained in the vocal arts, who along with the Rabbi, leads the congregation in prayer.  But there’s so much more for Cantor Tilem.  She’s been a member of the clergy at Temple Emeth, a reform congregation in Teaneck, New Jersey since 1994 following her Ordination from the Hebrew Union College – Jewish Institute of Religion – School of Sacred Music.  She officiates at weddings, funerals and baby namings.  And, as an experienced Pastoral Counselor she connects with congregants who are struggling with life’s challenges:  grief, spirituality, illness, divorce.  Join us as Cantor Tile shares her personal and professional stories.
