Cantor Shira Fox
Cantor, Spiritual CounselorAs the daughter of two Los Angeles based Cantors, Shira Fox grew up surrounded by music and immersed in Synagogue life. Passionate about Judaism, she held the position of B'nai Mitzah Teacher & Program Coordinator at Kehillat Israel, Pacific Palisades, from 2006 - 2012. While there, in her work with Jewish youth, and as a leader of "Rosh Chodesh, It's a Girl Thing," she cultivated a desire to pursue the field of recovery alongside her Cantorial studies. Shira was able to blend these pursuits at Beit T'Shuvah, serving as a spiritual counselor and Cantor from 2011 - 2013. Before coming back "home" to Beit T'shuvah in 2015, she served as Cantor of Temple Kol Tikvah in Woodland Hills from 2013 - 2015. Cantor Shira utilizes the healing properties of liturgy, music, and creative expression, and believes their synergistic combination provides a powerful means for finding recovery and spiritual growth. Shira has also been an Artist in Residence with the Jewish Women's Theater of Los Angeles and holds a degree in Literature and Creative Writing from SUNY, Empire State College.
