As a member of the bright new generation of Jewish musical artists, The Joshua C. Cohen (tJCC) has been playing and writing Jewish music since 2003. tJCC is currently a songleader for BBYO at the Leadership Summer Camp in Wisconsin and at regional conventions across the country. He has also performed on the Jewish Rock Radio stage at the Union for Reform Judaism Biennial Convention 2015. Was very fortunate to be one of the few songleaders for BBYO International Convention for the past two years.
Before moving to Boston to attend Berklee College of Music, tJCC served as a Cantorial Soloist for Temple Beth Torah in Fremont, CA, where he was also the Music Director for the Junior Choir and Religious School. When not traveling for BBYO, Cohen can be heard singing in either the Boston area or the Bay Area of Northern California for Shabbat evening and morning services including Bar/Bat Mitzvah Services and Holiday Family Services.
Cohen’s love of Jewish music developed not only at Temple but though attending his local Jewish day camp, Camp Kadima, where he later had the pleasure of continuing the ruach and kavanah as the Camp Songleader. Additionally, tJCC spent nearly a decade attending Camp Newman and later Kutz Camp as well as attending NFTY, BBYO, CAJE Conferences and Hava Nashira where he was honored to learn from a diversity of Jewish Artists who greatly influenced him.
