Cantor Devorah Avery

Cantor Devorah Avery, she/her, is passionate about meeting and honoring the sacred humanity within each person. Inclusivity and spirituality are two focal points of Cantor Avery’s work and she affirms that all people deserve a place and a voice at the community table. One of her endeavors is to create loving and gentle spaces through music and prayer as an entryway to connection - connection to each other, to faith, and to self. Cantor Avery believes strongly that there is no such thing as a “bad” Jew. We each have a unique unfolding in our lives of how we embrace and identify our Jewishness. She hopes you will show up as you are, in your own authenticity. There are many paths to creating meaning in our lives and returning home – returning to self. Cantor Avery hopes that in showing up, we can all recognize and embrace the sacred humanity not just in each other, but within ourselves.

Cantor Avery has served congregations in New York, Illinois, and Texas and is an active member of the American Conference of Cantors. She was ordained in 2007 from Hebrew Union College- Jewish Institute of Religion (HUC-JIR), has a Master’s from HUC-JIR in Sacred Music, and a B.A. in Music with an emphasis in voice and viola from The University of Tulsa in Tulsa, OK. She recently completed the Clergy Leadership Program through the Institute for Jewish Spirituality. Cantor Avery and her husband, Aaron Greenberg, live in Broomfield with their two cats and dog.
