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.
