Printer-friendly versionSend by emailCantor Deborah Katchko Gray founded the Women Cantors’ Network in 1982. The goal of the WCN is to promote the practice of Judaism through the dissemination, development, and commissioning of Jewish music and rituals for clergy and lay leaders serving in the cantorate.

The WCN provides information and education in areas related to the cantorate and Jewish music through annual conferences and on-line forums, commissions Jewish music for women’s voices, and serves as a forum for discussing practical issues for women in the cantorate by sharing professional knowledge and experiences in a supportive atmosphere.
