Wise Temple is very excited to welcome Rick Recht, one of the most influential and celebrated Jewish artists and leaders of our time, as our 2023 Musician-in-Residence. Recht’s innovations in Jewish music, media, and leadership training have had a profound impact on the fabric of Jewish life. He is the national celebrity spokesman for PJ Library and the founder and Executive Director of Songleader Boot Camp – a premiere national leadership training conference. Recht is the founder and Executive Director of Jewish Rock Radio and JKids Radio, the first high-caliber, 24/7 international Jewish music radio networks.
