Hazzan Michael Krausman

A native of Toronto, Hazzan Krausman received his Diploma of Hazzan & Bachelor of Sacred Music, Jewish Theological Seminary, in New York, in May 1995. He is also a graduate of the University of York, in Toronto, where he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology. Hazzan Krausman comes to us from Temple Sinai in Hollywood, Florida. Among his many contributions as a spiritual leader, he led a number of family education programs, created a Tallit and Tefillin Club for post-Bar/Bat Mitzvah students which combines prayer and fellowship with social justice themes; and established and led “Have Cup of Coffee With God,”  a monthly alternative Shabbat Shacharit learners’ service.

“As a shaliach tzibur (prayer emissary), I endeavor not only to facilitate and represent the prayers of the congregation but also to act as a liaison between the prayers and the congregation. Thus, I take every opportunity to teach and exemplify the spirituality, life and meaning of our sacred liturgy and music,” Hazzan Krausman said, adding, “As a part of the clergy team, I endeavor to reach out to each member of my congregational family.”

He and his wife, Laurel, are the parents of sons Zev and Zach.

Hazzan Krausman and Drs. Rich & Audrey Wiener
Space is limited – reserve your space today!

July 13-19, 2020
Join Hazzan Michael and Laurel Krausman and Drs. Rich and Audrey Wiener for an extraordinary journey to Poland guided by the unrivaled educators of the Ramah Institute! “We will trace the splendor of important Jewish communities in our history: Warsaw, Lublin, Krakow and more,” Hazzan Krausman said. “Exploring the richness of the Jewish life that existed in Poland more than 70 years ago will enhance your understanding of the enormity of the Shoah. Together, we will experience first-hand the remnants – and in some cases the revival – of the Jewish communities in Poland.”  Click here for more information, or contact Hazzan Krausman at Hazzankrausman@bethel-omaha.
