Ellen Allard

Early Childhood is the gateway to Judaism, the first door through which Jewish children walk. Given the enthusiasm that children have for music, it is Ellen’s mission to write songs for Jewish children that are 100% child-friendly AND teacher-friendly, songs that inspire them to connect to family, community, and Jewish values.

Coincidentally, many of the songs Ellen composes appeal also to older children and even to adults. She recently began making simple videos of herself singing her own songs. She then posts the videos on her YouTube channel in an effort to teach and invite clergy, music and classroom teachers, parents and children to celebrate Judaism through the gift of song. Ellen’s professional work as a Jewish Music Educator continues to fill her life with joy and purpose.

We hope that you find Ellen Allard’s songs useful and meaningful in your work as a Jewish professional.





Together, our goal is to enhance the knowledge and expertise of synagogue musicians through continuing education.
