Beth Schafer continues to redefine Jewish music by combining masterful songwriting with sensitivity to liturgy and unique insight toward text. She specializes in music for Torah-minded adults looking for an extension to their Jewish lives through music. What makes her music special is her attention to the universal themes that not only define Judaism, but many other faiths as well. Beth Schafer won the 2006 American Idol Underground Faith Based competition and has used that win to create new music for interfaith communities. Schafer has degrees in Music Theory and Composition and is a trained and much sought after guitarist in styles ranging from Classical to Blues, Folk to Jazz.
Beth works full time as the Bunzl Family Cantorial Chair at Temple Sinai in Atlanta, GA. She continues to write and record and tour on a limited basis.
