Cantor Abbe Lyons is thrilled to be back at Hillel at IC. She is an IC alumna (voice performance, 1987), former IC Hillel board member, and was Interim Director in Spring 2010 and 2017, after her ordination through ALEPH Alliance for Jewish Renewal. She teaches Jewish liturgical music, Hebrew prayer skills and music theory to ALEPH students by videoconference and sings in English, Hebrew and Spanish in a duo with Juliette Corazón and with her band Resonate. Abbe has also worked in the healing arts and nonprofit sectors. Her teenage son somehow manages living with two mothers, two grandmothers and two female cats. Fun fact: Abbe was certified as an auto mechanic in brakes and front end for 2 years in the early '80s.
