Kenny Green runs Hebrew school programs that allow his Jewish song leading talents to shine. Students learn in an atmosphere of fun and participation, through an array of musical selections from the traditional to modern. As in Kenny's pre-school programs, his goal is to encourage involvement in a way that inspires in kids a special enthusiasm. A musical experience with Kenny Green makes religious learning feel like something kids can own for themselves.
In addition to Hebrew school song leading Kenny is musically involved in the Shabbat, holiday and other religious services of several synagogues on a regular basis as well as teaching at staff enrichment conferences.
The charm that Kenny brings to his Hebrew school programs comes especially alive in concert settings. In 1996, after studying Jewish song leading with some of the world's leading experts in the field, Kenny was one of six musicians chosen out of hundreds of applicants from across the nation to represent the Jewish National Fund in their national performance troupe. He has since had the honor of performing on stage with the musical group Kol B'Seder and at New York City's famed "92nd Street Y" with world-renowned storyteller, Peninnah Schram. Also at the “92nd Street Y," Kenny has led numerous family Seders, as well as headlined their annual family Chanukah concert for several years in a row.
