Beth Shira cantor becomes full-time

Temple Beth Shira, located in western Boca Raton, has announced that Cantor Geniene Miller will be joining the temple full-time for all of its services starting with this year's High Holy Days. Miller had been with the temple part-time before.

In addition to the High Holy Days, Miller will be with the congregation at its services on the first and third Friday of every month.

Said Rick Alovis, the temple's co-president and co-founder: "Cantor Miller is such an exceptional talent and spirit. We are so lucky to have her join our TBS family."

In addition to Miller, Master Pianist Felix Spengler also will join the TBS worship team for one or more services each month, in addition to the High Holy Days.

Alongside Rabbi Joan Cubell, this completes the TBS clergy and music team.

Alovis said: "Temple Beth Shira is surely blessed to have these incredible individuals with us."

Temple Beth Shira (House of Song) is a diverse, multigenerational Reform Jewish synagogue, which has served the needs of western Boca Raton and Delray Beach for the past 10 years. As a nondiscriminatory congregation, TBS is open to all forms of families, singles, children and adults that have a connection to Judaism.

As its name implies, TBS uses both traditional and modern Jewish music as a vital tool in obtaining the congregation's goals. Friday night services are held on the first and third Fridays of every month.

Temple Beth Shira holds services at Temple Beth Shalom (19140 Lyons Road, just south of Yamato Road), located in Century Village in Boca Raton. For more information, directions, or to purchase High Holy Day tickets, visit, or call 561-912-1453.
