Regrettably I do not have a photo, but I wish to send my best wishes and share a few memories. My first High Holy Days services at IHC were truly extraordinary. Cantor Roger's voice gave me chills, and I found myself crying with tears of joy. The beauty of her voice...

My memories and tribute come in two main parts besides just being grateful and impressed with Janice's talent and dedication. First, I have never heard anyone (including professional recordings) do Ben Steinberg's arrangement of Shalom Rav as well as Janice does. It...

Ann Shepherd

After chanting the V'ahavta at my adult Bat Mitzvah, you told me I had a nice voice and should consider singing with the choir. I was not convinced I had any skill at that time, but your complement stayed in the back of my mind and several years later I joined the...

Dear Janice, I can't tell you how much I have enjoyed all that you've done over the years and the blessing of hearing your voice. I can't imagine IHC without you. I'm sorry I didn't get to know you better, sooner. Over the last two years especially you have...

With all you have done with your professional musical talents to enhance the spiritual lives of our congregants, from the very young to our seniors, you could have said, "Dayenu," it was enough, and we would have agreed that you indeed fulfilled your obligations to...

Dear Cantor Roger, I remember my time in the Chai Notes, Cantor's Chanters and Choir fondly. I learned so much from you, and not just about music. The Temple and the community are strong thanks in large part to your hard work and dedication. You will be succeeded, but...

After my dad died, at the last minute his girlfriend wanted me to call Janice to do a service at my home that night. I called Janice apologetically asking if this was possible on such short notice and she agreed. I was so grateful and the service had such a warmth...

I had amazing memories with Cantor Roger as I was preparing for my Bat Mitzvah. There were many meetings in her office and she had many praises for me. I chanted my portion almost perfectly because of all of her help. I will never forget when I was on the bimah while...
