Our Interim Spiritual Leader Cantor Caitlin Bromberg

 

Cantor Caitlin (O’Sullivan) Bromberg is thrilled to be joining Ner Tamid Synagogue as Interim Spiritual Leader.  Passionate about building community through deepening ties to Judaism and each other, Cantor Bromberg hopes to inspire a year of connection, learning, spiritual beauty and FUN! 

Cantor Bromberg is a native Californian, born in Berkeley and raised Catholic in a large theatrical family in San Diego.  An adolescent interest in Judaism led to her conversion as a young adult, and a background in music and theater inspired her pursuit of a career as a cantor. 

Cantor Bromberg earned a Masters of Sacred Music, Diploma of Hazzan and Cantorial Investiture from the Jewish Theological Seminary of America in New York. She also earned a B. A. in Theater and Anthropology from the University of California, San Diego. She recently returned to San Diego after serving several cantorial and interim spiritual leader positions in New Jersey. While in New Jersey, Cantor Bromberg managed the Introduction to Judaism program for the Union for Reform Judaism in New York and New Jersey. Cantor Bromberg served as Cantor in Conservative congregations in Albuquerque, New Mexico and El Paso, Texas. Her pastoral skills were deepened through service as a volunteer Chaplain for the Albuquerque Police Department.

Although Cantor Bromberg has extensive experience creating spiritually uplifting services and lifecycle ceremonies, and hopes you will join us frequently in prayer and song, she is excited about taking on the teaching duties of Spiritual Leader, and continuing the strong Torah learning tradition of Ner Tamid Synagogue.  In addition to Midrash and rabbinic texts, Cantor Bromberg delves into the Jewish mystical tradition, and is fascinated by the connections between anthropology, psychology and religion as reflected in the Torah. Cantor Bromberg is interested in the application of spiritual practices to everyday life – and looks to Jewish texts as a resource for asking and answering the global questions of our time – guiding us in our relationship to the earth and other human beings. 

Cantor Bromberg is looking forward to supporting the Ner Tamid community in this year of rabbinic transition. “A community can always go from strength to strength. Treasure the legacy, and build on that foundation for an amazing future!”
