Today we’re talking with Cantorial Ordinee Sarah Nicole Bollt.

1) With the ceremony approaching, what emotions are you feeling?

I am embarking on a great new adventure, and I am so excited to see what lies ahead for me!


2) What is one learning from your Academy experience that you will take with you after graduation?

Learning about Jewish prayer modes and cantorial improvisation will serve me for the rest of my career.


3) Is there anything you learned at AJRCA that truly surprised you?

There’s this guy named Jonathan Friedmann, and he’s published like 25 books and he’s not even 45 years old.


4) If you could go back in time and tell your pre-AJRCA self one thing, what would that be?

Don’t worry about hybrid classes. Pretty soon, everyone will be online with you, and it’ll be great. Kind of.


Congratulations Sarah!
