Mitch Cohen

Our Cantor & Choir Director
 

This is Mitch's third year as our cantor. He is a product of Adath Israel. He credits Junior Congregation at Adath Israel in the 1970's as giving him his start.  Later, he studied with Alan Weiner, Rabbi Wise, and Cantor Dani Birnbaum. Mitch joined the choir when he was 16 and became choir director in 1990.  Over the past 30

years, he wrote several choral pieces, including Unetaneh Tokev, Uva Shofar Gadol, Yaaleh, Hinini, El Melech Yoshev,  Hodieni, and  others.  He studied musical theater voice since his teens. As an adult, he studied voice for over 10 years under the tutelage of Karl Resnik, the Executive Director of the Musical Arts Center in Cincinnati.   He graduated from the University of Cincinnati with high honors in Psychology. While at UC, he also studied composition and music theory at CCM. He is married to Sherry and has three children, Jeff, Emily, and Ben.   His son Jeff has sung in our choir for almost 20 years, where he met his wife Nicole!

Below is a setting for Psalm 23 that Mitch wrote in 2018.
