Introducing the #Kutz17 Songleaders!

We’re thrilled to announce our #Kutz17 songleaders! Meet Noah and Danielle!

Noah Diamondstein is a rabbinical student at Hebrew Union College – Jewish Institute of Religion’s Los Angeles campus. Noah grew up in Allentown, PA at a conservative synagogue, and was an active in USY and BBYO. His first connection to NFTY came during his time at the University of Pittsburgh where he worked for three area Reform synagogues teaching music, songleading, leading services, and helping to coordinate the Temple youth groups. Noah has been songleading for 7 years, and a musician for his entire life, and has become a multi-instrumentalist in the process. He has worked professionally in the Jewish music field now for 6 years, two summers of those being spent at URJ Camp Harlam where he served as Head Songleader. After five years on the staff at Harlam, Noah is so excited to begin a new journey at Kutz this summer, working alongside his HUC Year in Israel classmate and very good friend and colleague Danielle!

Danielle Rodnizki is a second year cantorial student at HUC-JIR’s New York campus, hailing originally from Clearwater, FL. She has been songleading and worship-leading for over 11 years, and she is honored to have sung with camps, synagogues, and youth group regions across the US, currently serving as the Cantorial Intern at Stephen Wise Free Synagogue (New York, NY). Danielle participated in the Songleading Major at Kutz as a teen in 2007 & 2008 and had the privilege of returning as one of the Songleading Major Teachers on staff last summer. She is thrilled to be coming “home” once again for the 2017 session with Noah!
