CANTOR GERI ZELLER
Cantor Geri Zeller came to Beth Am Temple in 1987. She had a number of hazzanim in her family during her Orthodox upbringing and it was a delightful change of events when women were finally allowed on the bima. Cantor Zeller attended Emerson College and received her Masters in Spiritual Counseling from the University of New York.
She currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Pascack Valley Counseling Service, is the Vice President of the Women Cantor's Network, former Secretary of the Interfaith Clergy Council of Pearl River and a board and life member of the Pascack Valley Chapter of Jewish Women International and life member of Hadassah and the National Council of Jewish Women.
Cantor Zeller has officiated at services and performed in Costa Rica, the Former Soviet Union as well as several cities in the US.
She and her husband, Hans, reside in northern New Jersey and are the proud parents of Michael, Marc and daughters-in-law Ashley and Traci, and proud Bubbe and Opa of Jack and Jillian and twins Henry and Charlie. Cantor Zeller retired on July 1, 2005 after serving our congregation for 18 years. She has been given the title Cantor Emerita by the Board of Trustees.
