Stacey A. Morse, MA

Cantorial Soloist

Born of a brilliant hippie Democrat and a Republican "McGyver," Cantorial Soloist Stacey Morse lives for harmony -- in all forms. Her family joined Temple Menorah after they drove from New York, harmonizing all the way, when she was a toddler. She was given her Hebrew name, Shira (song), by Temple Menorah's Cantor Avshalom Cohen. Her family's havurah later created Congregation Tifereth Jacob, now Congregation Tikvat Jacob-Beth Torah, in Manhattan Beach.
