About Cantor Reut Ben-Zeev

About

Reut Ben-Zeev is a cantor who has been officiating life-cycle events for over 20 years, primarily in the New York area. Cantor Ben-Zeev works with couples to create a personal and meaningful ceremony that is authentic to the two of you. She meets with each couple several times before the wedding to develop a personal relationship so that she can talk about your uniqueness during the ceremony. Reut also takes care get to review and understand with you as a couple what each part of the ceremony is about, while incorporating your dreams, needs, personal style and vision to tailor-make it to be authentic you. Being also a professional classical singer specializing in Jewish music, cantor Ben-Zeev uses her vocal training to create a spiritual, heartfelt atmosphere during the ceremony. Growing up in Israel, she developed a natural love and affinity for Hebrew and Jewish texts which has led her to working as a cantor in different synagogues as well as a wedding officiant.

Re'ut is also a professional classical singer, performing in venues as Lincoln Center, with The New York Philharmonic ensembles and on the soundtrack of Natalie Portman's directorial debut film: A Tale of Love and Darkness. Re'ut served as cantor at congregation Beit Simchat Torah in Manhattan, Temple Shalom, Naples Florida among others.

    Amazing B’nai Mitzvah experience

    Cantor Re’ut officiated my twin boys’ bnai mitzvah in April 2021. She was so warm and caring with my boys and so professional. She took so much time to make the service exactly what we wanted, even the non traditional parts, and helped get my boys ready in just a few months. We can’t wait to use her again for my younger children. We loved her.
