Hi my name is Rebecca Bensimon and I’ve been a volunteer with the Montreal Shira Choir since it first started almost 2 and a half year ago! It has been the most amazing journey watching this choir go from around 6-7 members to almost 35! When Danny and Muriel first approached me to help out with the choir I had no idea how much of an impact and influence it would have to so many people, including myself. 

I have my Bachelor’s degree in psychology and I’m currently finishing a program to become a Special Care Counsellor. My long term goal career wise, is to be a clinical social worker and I intend on completing my masters degree in the near future. 

Although the effects of COVID-19 have limited our ability to be together, I always look forward to our Tuesday zoom rehearsals because I know how much joy and happiness it brings to all our members especially during these unprecedented times. 

The Montreal Shira Choir is a special group that I am so incredibly proud to be a part of and I cannot wait to see what the future has in store for us!
