Rabbi Douglas Kohn
"Although Temple Beth El has an envious, near-century of history, its future will not be built on the embrace of yesterday, but on the will to tomorrow. I thank the membership and leadership of Temple Beth El for the privilege of serving you this coming year, and we look forward to participating in the temple’s continuing evolution into its many tomorrows."

The youngest in a long familial line of cantors, he began his training at the age of five with his mentor, Hazzan Philip Model z'l. With his strong performing arts background from the University of California, our cantor is also a talented secular musician and contemporary Jewish singer and songwriter.
