Cantor Horwitz has over twenty-five years of experience working with children, teens, families and seniors in Jewish Community Centers, hospitals, nursing homes, schools, college campuses, summer camps, and synagogues throughout the United States.  The cantor has lived and worked throughout the United States, including congregations in Altoona, PA, Wilmington, DE, Omaha, NE, and Houston, TX.

G. Michael Horwitz is a highly creative and enthusiastic professional with extensive background in working with senior citizens, youth, chaplaincy, family education, spiritual counseling, music, camping, programming for all age groups, ecumenical and inter-faith collaborations.  He is a supportive chaplain who creates relationships with staff, families, and loved ones in need of pastoral care as well as offering them guidance on journeys of recovery, healing, grief and loss in various health care facilities throughout the country.  Cantor Horwitz facilitates the needs of individuals and staff representing all religions, cultures and backgrounds.

He is an accomplished distance runner and finisher of 30 marathons, including 5 New York City Marathons. Hazzan Horwitz has two sons, Elliott and Quinn.
