Rabbi Hazzan Myers received a BA from Rutgers, an MA in Jewish Education from the Jewish Theological Seminary, and studied privately with Cantor Zvi Aroni before graduating from the Cantorial School of The Jewish Theological Seminary (JTS).  He holds Rabbinic Ordination from Mesivta Adat Wolkowisk and an honorary doctorate in music from JTS.  He organized the June 1998 gathering of nearly 1,000 children from the NJ, PA, NY area to celebrate Israel’s 50th Anniversary in Central Park under the auspices of the 50th anniversary gathering of the Cantors Assembly.

Rabbi Myers currently serves as a trustee on the Executive Board of the Jewish Educators Assembly. He has also served on the National Education Commission of the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism and the National Deliberation Team for Project Etgar, the new curriculum for the middle school that is a joint project of the United Synagogue and the Melton Institute. He received a Schechter Award for his interfaith Evening of Harmony that commemorates the Holocaust and awards for synagogue and family programming. He is married to Janice, a special educator at Community Day School, and they are past recipients of the Ben Gurion Award from Israel Bonds. They have two children, Rachel and Aaron.
