Cantor Murray Hochberg

Cantor Hochberg joined the United Hebrew clergy in August, 1967 as the first cantor to serve in this role in a Reform congregation in St. Louis. In addition to leading and participating in worship services, he served as Music Director for the Congregation, religious school, Hebrew school and the b’nai mitzvah program. In the thirty-two years he served United Hebrew, he educated two generations—representing thousands—of students, established and nurtured the Adult Choir and enriched our services with his rich baritone voice. Cantor Hochberg became emeritus in 1999 and remains an active participant at United Hebrew, with his wife Joyce.  He often joins Cantor Eichaker on the Bimah for special worship, Holy Day and festival services
