Jenna McMillan is a fourth-year cantorial student from Wixom, Michigan. She graduated from University of Michigan with a bachelors in Judaic Studies and Anthropology. While at U of M, she worked at her home congregation, Temple Israel of West Bloomfield, lending her voice to their Kabbalat Shabbat and Shacharit services. Jenna has also had experience volunteering as a Shiva leader in college, interning at Beit Tefilah Yisraeli, leading High Holy Day services for two years as an undergraduate at Temple Beth El of Flint, and working as Student Cantor at North Country Reform Temple. Last year, Jenna took a trip to India with JDC Entwine to meet the Jewish community and to see the rich history of Judaism within the country.
The past two summers, Jenna has worked as a Judaics Specialist and Music Specialist for JCC Day Camps in Detroit and Manhattan. She has also worked for Central Synagogue as a B’nei Mitzvah tutor, and for the last year as T’filah leader for K-5 for the Downtown LCLJ, and religious school teacher for an uptown sixth grade class. She is excited to continue on with Central in the role of Student Cantor.
