Praise for Jodi

Her Soothing Melodies Tenderly Guide our Congregation in Prayer
"It's as if G-d is singing to us through Jodi Blankstein's voice. Her soothing, embracing, emotive melodies tenderly guide our congregation in prayer as we welcome Shabbat. Either with responsive voices or closed eyes, all are engaged. In the last two years or so that Jodi Blankstein has led our services attendance has markedly increased. We need more prayer books and chairs....what a wonderful problem to have. Temple Habonim is experiencing spiritual growth. The love of G-d and the need to be together as a Jewish community is palpable. You can see it in the faces of the children as well as the elders. Jodi Blankstein brings warmth, hope, peace, and G-d to all of us. So many prayers are wonderful but for me the R'Tzei is nectar for the soul. Come to our services and close your eyes....your heart will open."
-Dr. Jay Schachne, congregant of Temple Habonim

Jodi Blankstein is a wonderful singer of Israel!
"She truly understands the role of Cantorial Soloist and the art of chazzanut and makes meaningful and authentic contributions to worship services and life-cycle events. Jodi has a wonderful repertoire of Jewish music, has a keen awareness of how to select and choose music to fit the occasion, has excellent command of Hebrew, and, most importantly, takes her role as a leader of song and prayer seriously. In whatever she does, Jodi fosters an atmosphere of inclusiveness, emanates warmth, and uses her beautiful voice and her heart to bring just the right sound and quality to her work. Jodi creates a sense of community that lasts long beyond the last note she sings at any event, occasion or service."
-Rabbi Lisa Eiduson


Her Beautiful Voice Adds Depth and Richness to our Services
"Jodi Blankstein has served Temple Habonim as our part time cantorial soloist since January 2009. In the time that she has been with us, Jodi has chanted and sung her way into the heart of our congregation. Jodi feels a deep spiritual connection to Jewish music and liturgy, which is evident in the way she leads us in worship. Jodi plays an integral part in creating a deeply prayerful environment for our community. Her beautiful voice adds depth and richness to our services. Jodi is extremely professional and responsible; her presence and her music are a gift to any service in which she participates."
-Rabbi Andrew Klein, Temple Habonim
