Cantor Jeremy Burko




Chazzan Jeremy Burko has been proud to serve the Beth Radom Congregation since 2015.  Graduating from the Jewish Theological Seminary in 2010 with a Master’s degree in Sacred Music and cantorial investiture, Chazzan Jeremy first served the New North London Synagogue in London, England, and then the Agudath Israel Congregation (now Kehilat Beth Israel) in Ottawa.  A Toronto native, Chazzan Jeremy grew up as a part of the Beth Emeth Bais Yehudah Synagogue, singing as a boy chorister for the great Chazzan Louis Danto, under the direction of Charles Heller.  Chazzan Jeremy was one of the early pioneers of the Jewish a cappella movement, having founded and directed the University of Toronto’s Varsity Jews, as well as London’s Tabouli.  He has toured extensively with New York City’s renowned Jewish A Cappella group, Pizmon, Jerusalem’s Great Synagogue Choir and Matthew Lazar’s Manhattan Zamir Chorale.  Chazzan Jeremy has also starred internationally in musical theatre productions including playing the role of Jean Valjean in Jerusalem’s 2006 production of Les Miserables.  As Cantor of the Beth Radom Congregation, Chazzan Jeremy can be heard at shul davening on Shabbat, festivals and High Holydays.  He personally tutors each of Beth Radom’s bar and bat mitzvah candidates, lectures on a wide variety of topics of Jewish interest, and is known for his unique and creative Chanukah concerts each year.  During the COVID-19 pandemic, Chazzan Jeremy hosts weekly virtual mix of Jewish and secular music and community over Zoom, and his inspiring video divrei Torah are regularly posted to the Beth Radom YouTube channel.
