Cantor Risa Wallach ’15

“It feels true to me that the cantorate chose me, and not the reverse. I have been propelled forward with great momentum by this calling, beginning with a childhood home imbued with music and the mandate to serve humanity, particularly people in distress.”

(Cantor Risa Wallach ’15, Hazzan at Congregation B’nai Shalom in Walnut Creek, Calif.)
