about me

juval porat. photo by kenna loveHello! My name is Juval (as in “yoo-val”) Porat. I arrived to Los Angeles in late 2009 as a German/Israeli transplant to serve as the Cantor for congregation Beth Chayim Chadashim. I graduated from the Abraham-Geiger-College in Berlin. I also graduated from Architecture School at some point and worked in web-design and programming for a while. I’m a member of the American Conference of Cantors and I aspire to provide people and communities with meaning, depth and purpose through music and rituals drawn from Judaism’s rich tradition. Please check out my blog, my music or my cantorate-page to learn more about me. Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you’re inclined. I would love to hear from you.
