Everything Eliana does stems from a deep passion for Jewish life and learning.
Song-leading, song-writing, prayer leading, educating... It's all directed from one heart and towards one goal:
To help individuals discover themselves within the depth and richness of Jewish life, and to take ownership of their Judaism.
Raised in Memphis, TN on soul music and synagogue life, Eliana has led programs and performed all across the country.
She currently lives in New York City, where she is the Director of Music Education at Park Avenue Synagogue. She graduated the Jewish Theological Seminary with a Masters in Experiential Jewish Education in 2016. While in NYC, Eliana has worked with other amazing organizations including the JCC of Manhattan, Romemu, The New Shul, and Lab/Shul.
