Adam Feder

Director of Music & Development

 

Adam Feder, The Shul's Director of Music & Development and leader of The Shul Band,has been exploring and sharing Jewish liturgy with Rabbi Burt since 1997.  A guitarist, singer and composer since the age of 10,  Adam feels that music is about listening and connecting and The Shul Band is this expression.  His love of Jewish music has its roots in memories of his grandmother’s Yiddish melodies, her cooking and years of Passover Seder musical marathons, accompanying his father’s accordion. 

Along the way Adam has studied the Philosophy of Religion at Sarah Lawrence College, meditated at too many week-long retreats to be counted, grown and developed a network of inner-city community gardens in Yonkers NY, received an MSW from Hunter College School of Social Work and worked as a Hospice Social Worker for 5 years. 

Through the years music and synagogue have been the common denominator.  “The Shul and music are places I return to over and over again to renew and to connect to my heart”.
