Anat plays intimate house concerts with participatory singing, fun festive dance music, and is a ringer as a vocalist and pianist.
Anat leads prayer and ritual, grounded in her study of traditional Jewish prayer, earth-based experiential Jewish ritual and education, and her connection with the Divine through the Earth. Most recently, she was the Director of Yahadut (Judaism) and Music at Eden Village West, and led High Holiday services at Cornell University.
Anat teaches voice, piano, ear training, and beginning guitar to students of all ages. Anat brings her experience with formal classical & jazz studies and public school music teaching as well as her love of creativity and improvisation to bring out the natural musicality in her students.
Anat is a creative Jewish educator. She brings her traditional Torah study, her Hebrew-speaking Israeli roots, and her love of play to her teaching. Anat has spent time in traditional yeshiva study (Yeshivat Hadar) as well as in immersive experiential learning (Urban Adamah, Eden Village Camp). In her 3rd-grade classroom at Congregation Beth Elohim, students learn Hebrew calligraphy with chalk, freeze dance to Ofra Haza, and ask questions about Shabbat all the time.
