A classically trained soprano, Cantor Lisa Peicott serves as Assistant Cantor at Wilshire Boulevard Temple under Don Gurney, striving, as she says, “to lift congregants to a higher spiritual place through the power of music and prayer while also working to inspire our youth to build and maintain a strong connection to Judaism.” Cantor Peicott earned undergraduate and Masters degrees in music from the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music. She later began cantorial studies at the Academy for Jewish Religion of California. She was ordained as a cantor in 2018.

Cantor Ilan Davidson has served Temple Beth El for 25 years. With a strong performing arts background, he is also a talented secular musician and contemporary Jewish singer and songwriter. A consummate artist and a devoted social activist, he combines these two passions in a beautiful way. 

Among his many accomplishments, Cantor Davidson is also known as a contemporary Jewish songwriter and performer, having delighted audiences all over the world, including Israel and Lithuania with the soulful sounds of his music. His recordings, Stained Glass (1995) and In A Hanukkah Mood (2007) are collections of original and covered songs by himself and many contemporary Jewish artists.
