Lori Lippitz (Vocalist, Guitarist, Band Director) studied Russian at the University of Michigan, where she organized activism for Soviet Jewry, and at the University of Chicago.

After establishing a not-for-profit to support the revival of Jewish culture in Chicago (the Klezmer Music Foundation), Lori started the Junior Klezmer Orchestra, three congregational klezmer bands, and the Salaam-Shalom Music Project, an interfaith performing group. She also serves as a freelance Cantorial Soloist. Lori is married and lives in Skokie.
