Cantor Ruti Braier, who has served at University Synagogue since 1995, was born in Argentina, lived in Israel and moved to Southern California in 1982. She studied Judaica at Midrasha L'morim, affiliated with Tel Aviv University, holds degrees in music from the "Conservatorio de Musica" and in music therapy from the University of El Salvador, both in Buenos Aires, and studied with a number of well known cantors in Los Angeles.
Cantor Braier has toured as the lead singer of two musical groups "Shachar" and "Manginot Bashira" and was a finalist on television's "International Star Search".
For almost two decades, she served at Sinai Temple in Los Angeles as School Music Director and leader of Family Services, and,for several years, was Cantor for High Holiday services at Congregation Beth Or. Her creativity and talent have resulted in the establishment of numerous children and teen choirs, including the University Synagogue Children's Choir and the Young Cantors' Ensemble.
University Synagogue is enriched by our Cantor's ability to integrate multiple musical styles from classical Hebrew liturgy to modern Israeli music to American pop,folk and jazz. Cantor Braier's beautiful singing, which can be heard on her CD "Shabbat Alive" (available at University Synagogue and numerous stores and catalogs), adds a wonderful spiritual dimension to our services, one that is truly unique.
