Minna Bromberg

Minna Bromberg is a singer-songwriter, rabbi, and teacher of voice and Torah who brings striking passion and energy to every part of her world. She grew up on Eastern Long Island, and her rich, powerful vocals and sharp songwriting are marked indelibly by the pull of the ocean and the tang of sea air. Whether enchanting audiences with her amazing voice, reaching listeners with the unusual intensity of her extraordinary songwriting, or challenging individuals to rethink the way they see the world, Minna simply shines.

After her years of singing, sailing, and teaching environmental education aboard the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater, Pete Seeger, Clearwater's founder, wrote, “Minna was the Clearwater's best singer up and down the Hudson. Now she's Clearwater's loss but the world's gain; sing on, Minna, bind this world together!”

She released her first album of original songs, Wherever I've Come From, Wherever I Go, in 1995. Her second independent release, The World Is Ready, came out in 1999; the write-up in The Victory Review called Minna "a Joni Mitchell for the new millennium," and said, "she strikes with a sweet venom." Subsequent releases, Live at Lena's (2002) and Open Our Hearts (2005) have allowed Minna to delve more deeply into the richness of the Jewish wisdom tradition as a source for songs, chants, and liturgical settings.
