Cantor Ben helped me to take the first steps in chanting festival trope,for Shir Hashirim, Kohelet and Ruth, supporting me all the way from practice to the bimah.
As a mom who is approaching her son’s Bar Mitzvah year, I wanted to increase my knowledge base.
Cantor Ben helped me to do this!
He encouraged my personal growth of tefillah,
which has resulted in a deeper understanding, and our increased kavanah as a
Dear Cantor Ben,
Thanks for all you do at Beth Shalom and in the Pittsburgh music community.
May you and Alyssa be blessed with peace, joy, and happiness in your life together.
I believe Ben would be an asset to any congregation that employs him as a hazzan. I highly recommend Ben both as a cantor and as a worker. I recommend him as someone who posesses excellent communication and educational skills, Jewish knowledge, and leadership qualities. I recommend him as a talented and gifted person with wonderful musical skills. I recommend him as a superb, sensitive human being who cares about his fellow men and women. A real mensch.
Beth Shalom is a wonderful shul, but it can be difficult to feel welcome as a young person without children. Nevertheless, Cantor Ben helped make us feel comfortable and welcome as a kind, friendly, and enthusiastic leader. Both Reuben and I believe that Cantor Ben is a huge asset to the Beth Shalom congregation.
Thank you very much for the enjoyable class that you organized in your home. People had a great time, and the appreciation for what you do was in the air. The delicious refreshments added even more excitement!
Ian and I want to thank you again for participating in our son’s Aufruf ceremony and weekend. Your beautiful voice added to the simcha and ceremony. The entire Shabbat service (with the Bat Mitzvah) was so spirited and and meaningful. We’re glad you and Alyssa could celebrate with us. Many thanks.
I must tell you as meaningful and as beautiful as Jesse was on Shabbat, it was your manner in getting Jesse ready that really made a difference. Throughout all of his preparation, you were kind, fun and inspiring to him…you knew when to push and when to give him some room. You really made the [Bar Mitzvah] a memory that will be with us and Jessee for the rest of our lives. We are so glad you were able to join us in the evening and celebrate this wonderful day with us. Thank you again.
All in all, any congregation which employs Ben Rosner as its Hazzan will be most pleased and have a wonderful, caring and talented young man in its midst.
I admire your musicianship, your God-given talent and your abilities on piano and guitar… I am so delighted those people whose job it was to hire a cantor recruited a wonderful talent with your gorgeous voice, which just flows naturally the minute you open your mouth.
Ben is a personable and likable young man whose maturity and commitment to our community I respect, and whose behavior is always impeccable and appropriate…possessing genuine charm, he is very well liked and admired throughout our congregation.
