The students of the H. L. Miller Cantorial School and College of Jewish Music of The Jewish Theological Seminary spend five years learning and integrating the skills that will allow them to serve the Jewish community as cantors, leaders, and educators. The training includes performance preparation and studies in nusah, prayer, text skills, and general music.  

This program is cosponsored by the John Leopold and Martha Dellheim Endowment Fund and the H. L. Miller Cantorial School.   John Dellheim (z"l) was a Holocaust survivor who became a pioneer computer programmer at IBM. He deeply loved Judaism and Jewish music, and endowed the John Leopold and Martha Dellheim Senior Recitals in order to bring Western cantorial music to synagogues around the United States via the graduating cantors of the H. L. Miller Cantorial School, thereby perpetuating the performance and transmission of Jewish sacred music to future generations. He dedicated the annual senior recitals to his beloved mother, Martha Dellheim (z"l). The John Leopold and Martha Dellheim Senior Recitals initiative includes an internship program that pairs students with mentors in the field, and expands the school's opportunities to teach concert planning, enhance repertoire coaching, and present student performances.
