Hazzan Naomi Hirsch received Cantorial Ordination; a Master of Sacred Music, and 25 years later, an Honorary Doctorate, from Hebrew Union College-School of Sacred Music in New York City. A trailblazer for progressive Jewish women clergy, Hazzan Hirsch was one of the first 14 women inducted into the Cantors Assembly in 1991, and subsequently, the first cantor to be employed full-time by Hillel: The Foundation for Jewish Campus Life, at Yale University. She has held full-time pulpits in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Maryland.

Currently, Hazzan Hirsch resides in Philadelphia where she serves the community in a variety of ways: teaching Judaism, Hebrew, and Mussar to students of all ages; providing pastoral care through Jewish Family and Children's Services of Greater Philadelphia; and traveling (or Zooming!) to congregations across the country, as a guest cantor, scholar, or performer. Hazzan Hirsch was certified as a Mussar Madrichah by the Center for Contemporary Mussar in Philadelphia. She has been teaching Mussar at BTBJ since 2018.
