Cantor Jamie Gloth joined Temple Aliyah in 2017 after serving as cantor in Conservative congregations in New Jersey, California, Ohio and New York. Cantor Gloth was born and raised in Akron, Ohio, where he began singing in his synagogue’s Junior Choir at age ten, and later sang in the Adult Choir through college. Active in both Kadima and U.S.Y., Cantor Gloth served as president of both groups and later served as staff member, counselor, teacher, and advisor for many regional and national youth group events.
Cantor Gloth attended the University of Cincinnati, where he majored in Judaic Studies and was extremely active in the Hillel Jewish Student Center, starring in two stage productions there. After graduation, he attended the H.L. Miller Cantorial School and College of Jewish Music at the Jewish Theological Seminary, in New York. While studying at JTS, he and his classmates starred in and toured with the well-received cabaret show Cantors on Broadway. He received his Master of Sacred Music degree and investiture as Hazzan from the Seminary in 1997.

He is married to Bina Carr and is father to Avi, Micah, Jacob and Naomi.
When Cantor Gloth is not teaching, leading the congregation in prayer or singing his favorite Broadway showtunes, he is usually relaxing with his family while rooting on the Cleveland Cavaliers, Indians, and yes, even the Browns.
