Cantor Deborah Martin, the spiritual leader at Congregation Emanu-El of Waukesha, has announced she will be retiring when her contract ends on June 30, 2020.
She said her role at CEEW has been “very rewarding and fulfilling, and I will cherish the time I have had with this very special congregation. However, soon it will be time for me to spend more time with my family and to be more available to them. It will be time for more travel and relaxation.”
Martin served as cantor for 24 years at Temple Beth-El in Madison before joining CEEW on July 1, 2015, as its first female spiritual leader.
