We are thrilled to welcome Jacob Spike Kraus as he joins our Shabbat@WHC band for an evening of fun-filled music.

Kraus’ music has been included in the cantorial curriculum of Hebrew Union College – Jewish Institute of Religion and is featured by Jewish Rock Radio & PJ Library. Originally from Boston, Kraus has been song-leading for over a decade at synagogues, day schools, and summer camps. Now he spends his summers touring Jewish summer camps across North America – performing, teaching, and just being generally “camp-ful”.
