Cantor Joanna P. Lind is the sixth generation Lind family cantor following her grandfather, Cantor Dale Lind, and his father, Hazan Joshua Lind, both also renowned teachers and liturgical composers. At the age of seven, Joanna became the nation's youngest Cantorial Soloist, singing at her family's Conservative-style, egalitarian, independent congregation, Sons of Joshua, which provided a place for unaffiliated Chicago-area Jews to attend high holiday services.

Having earned a B.S. from Northwestern University (Theatre), Cantor Lind was later ordained through JSLI in a multi-denominational program. Currently, she performs life cycle events independently and is the cantor part-time for Congregation Ahavat Olam, a small but mighty congregation led by Rabbi Cantor Nancy Landsman.

Outside of her religious calling, Cantor Lind is also a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, performer, poet, and Mommy.

We are a welcoming Reform Jewish congregation in Glenview, IL, providing an intimate and spiritual community environment of belonging and connectedness. Individuals and families gather together at our Glenview “Synagogue” for unique worship experiences, social, educational, and interfaith programs.
