Cantorial Intern Alexandra Kurland

ALEXANDRA KURLAND – Cantorial Intern

Alexandra (“Alex”) Kurland is from Highland Park, Illinois. Alex graduated in 2011 from Wellesley College with a bachelor’s degree in music and Italian studies.

Alex grew up at North Shore Congregation Israel in Glencoe, Illinois, and is grateful to have worked with her mentors there as a cantorial intern in preparation for her studies at the Debbie Friedman School of Sacred Music at HUC-JIR, where she is a candidate for cantorial ordination in 2020.

Alex served the community of North Country Reform Temple in Glen Cove, New York, as a student cantor, and at Congregation Rodeph Sholom in New York City as a tutor for bar and bat mitzvah students. Alex is thrilled to become part of the Emanu-El community as our new cantorial intern.
