Hillel Academy names Cantor Schlossberg as Jewish Life, Curriculum director

Hillel Academy has appointed Cantor Beth Schlossberg, who has served for the past 5 years as cantor at Congregation Kol Ami in Tampa, as director of Jewish Life and Curriculum at the academy.

Schlossberg’s “vast skills, experience and background are exactly what we need and will ensure our ongoing trajectory forward as a premiere Jewish day school, constantly improving and looking to take Hillel Academy to the next level,” said board President Stanford Solomon.

Head of School Allison Oakes said Schlossberg’s “passion for Jewish education and her creativity will even further develop the Jewish identity and leadership skills of our students.”

Schlossberg comes to Hillel Academy after most recently serving as cantor and co-director for the religious school at Congregation Kol Ami, where she built a comprehensive and creative elementary and middle school Hebrew and Judaics Curriculum.

Schlossberg will remain at Kol Ami until her contract ends on June 30 and begin at Hillel Academy on July 1.

A graduate of the University of Michigan, Schlossberg earned a bachelor of music specializing in voice performance and spent several years singing professionally. She has taught piano and voice, directed the Hebrew School and pre-school music programs at Har Zion Temple in Narberth, PA, and has offered holiday and diversity programming for other private religious institutions, both Jewish and non Jewish.

In 2003, realizing that the cantorate was a perfect fit to combine her love of Judaism, education, and music, Schlossberg began her studies at the H.L. Miller Cantorial School at the Jewish Theological Seminary. After being invested, Schlossberg spent four years with Beth El Synagogue in Omaha, NE. In 2013, she and her husband Michael, moved to Tampa to join Congregation Kol Ami in 2013.
