Reflections from our Alumni

„I´ve met in Geiger friends & colleagues for life and was honored to have been taught by my dear professors; Cantor Eli Schleifer and Cantor Israel Goldstein who have given me beyond musical knowledge a live example of integrity and modesty. My appreciation to them and their work is beyond words.“

Cantor Aviv Weinberg

„Due to the complexity of reestablishing strong and viable Judaism in Central Europe, Abraham Geiger Kolleg must constantly innovate within a heterogeneous student body. This meant that Geiger pushed my in my studies further than I could have ever imagined and pushed me as a person to strive as I have never before striven.“

Rabbi Paul Strasko

„I feel blessed and privileged to have been guided by incredible teachers throughout my Cantorial studies at the Geiger College. Their devotion and personal attention was a valuable component of my education that I will forever cherish.“

Cantor Juval Porat

„Studying at Geiger College gave me the wonderful opportunity to learn with famous Rabbis and Cantors from all over the world.“

Rabbi Alexander Nachama

“The warm and collegial atmosphere at Abraham Geiger College is really extraordinary, as is the faculty’s consistent support for their students. The high point of the week was always the Thursday morning prayers – a minyan of rabbis, cantors, and their students. I really miss those Thursday mornings with my teachers and fellow students.”

Rabbi Dr. Yael Deusel

"Every new year in the College has brought not only profound academical knowledge, but also valuable community experiences and their psychological group reflection. Rabbinical studies were the coining impulses for the liturgical and pastoral skills, the self-development and delight about the rabbinical work."

Rabbi Dr. Tom Kucera
