HaZamir Parent Council (HPC)

The HaZamir Parent Council is composed of devoted parents and alumni parents from chapters across the United States and Israel. The HPC provide the HaZamir National Office with wise counsel on a myriad of issues, functioning as a "think tank" of sorts to give us advice and feedback on new initiatives or old ones that might need revision. Members also help us communicate with parents in local HaZamir chapters and serve as ambassadors for the work of HaZamir and the Zamir Choral Foundation.


This year, Cantor Ronit Hanan, who has joined the HaZamir staff as the Director of Special Projects, will oversee the HPC. As a HaZamir parent, Ronit established and then coordinated the HaZamir Bergen County chapter. She became the conductor of that chapter 3 years ago. Ronit is well poised to support the HPC with the many varied positions she has held over the past 8 years.
