Cantorial Soloist Jodi Blankstein received her certificate in Jewish liturgical music from Hebrew College in June of 2010. Over the past seven years, Jodi has served as the Cantorial Soloist at Temple Habonim in Barrington, RI, Temple Emanuel in Andover, and the Beth El Temple Center in Belmont. In addition to her role as our new Cantorial Soloist, Jodi can also be heard leading the Temple Beth Elohim community in Wellesley in song and prayer.
Prior to her Cantorial work, Jodi attended Lesley College where she received her degree in Elementary Education. After teaching elementary school for ten years, Jodi started her journey in sacred music while raising her two children. Immersing herself in her Cantorial role has enabled Jodi to combine her love of teaching and spiritual song.
