Booking Info


Alisa does not consider herself a 'feminist' but lectures occasionally on being a woman in a traditionally male profession. She also speaks about music, prayer and spirituality.

She has taught sessions for Women's League, National Council of Jewish Women, Federation of Jewish Mens Clubs, United Synagogue and Hadassah. She has been a Torah Fund honoree and her sessions are well attended by her colleagues at the annual national Cantors Assembly Convention.

As part of her day-to-day responsibilities, Hazzan Pomerantz-Boro teaches "Chanter with the Cantor," an introduction to the sacred trop used to read from the Torah. She created  the weekly Wednesday "Minyan and Me" and enjoys leading the thought-provoking discussions at breakfast. With her rabbinical colleagues, she teaches the Adult B'nai Mitzvah program and the annual "Tallis & Tefillin" series. If you live in South Jersey, she invites you come and learn with her!
