A native of Argentina, "Hazzan Pablo" joined Temple Etz Chaim in June 2001 after serving nine years as cantor at Bet Hillel in Buenos Aires. Moving to another country on another continent was a transitional moment for Hazzan Pablo and his wife, Julieta, and now they make their home in Ventura County. Hazzan Pablo and Julieta are the proud parents of two beautiful children, Carmel and Dahlia.
Prayer and song, especially in communal expression, have central meaning to Hazzan Pablo. He believes these elements are essential to put us in contact with our emotions, G‑d, and each other. In his own words, “praying together in song and music brings a unique energy.”
Hazzan Pablo’s beautiful voice is complemented by his warmth, his sincere interest in people, and the education of our children, youth and adults alike. He brings energy and enthusiasm to our services and special events, and he imparts that energy to all who attend. Hazzan Pablo truly touches the “neshama,” the soul, of each of us as he brings our ancient prayers to life.
