About Cantor Jessica

From an early age, I sang for the congregation at Temple Beth El of Boca Raton, FL with my mother, Cantor Ann Turnoff. I feel quite blessed to be able to say that I received my cantorial training in the traditional manner, from my parent who is a Cantor. Of course, the fact that my mother is a Cantor is not exactly traditional. This is part of the reason I am so passionate about a practice of Judaism that supports and even requires constant change and growth.  Ceremonies which embrace tradition as well as new expressions of "family" are yet another way Judaism is changing and growing, becoming more open, more aligned with unity.

I understand firsthand the challenges and joys of interfaith marriage and interfaith family life. In 2006, I married my husband and became one of more than a million Jewish/interfaith American families. 

I’m also a psychotherapist and energy healer. I trained at and served on the faculty of the Barbara Brennan School of Healing, a 4-year college dedicated to the study of the human energy system.  For those precious moments when you stand with your beloved and make the vows that bind you as a family, it is invaluable to be held in sacred, calm space. Creating this space is something I do as a healer, and something that I love to create as I usher couples into their married life.

From 2000-2007, and 2013 - present, I led prayers at Temple Beth Am in Jupiter, FL. Before 2000, I led special worship services and musical programs at many congregations in and around Philadelphia, Chicago, and South Florida. I hold an MA from Northwestern University and BA from Haverford College. I was a visiting undergraduate at Harvard University and hold various credentials from The Barbara Brennan School of Healing.
