The European Cantors Association (ECA) is an independent organization founded in 2012 in the United Kingdom. The ECA is a framework for cantors, prayer leaders, and interested laypersons from across the spectrum of Jewish G’worship to engage in dialogue, training, and profiling to ensure that the beautiful and unique music of Jewish prayer enriches the synagogue G’worship services of future generations.

ECA organizes cantor conferences throughout Europe, the Zoom series “The Voice of the Cantor (VOC),” and international conferences on the music of Jewish prayer in partnership with universities around the world.
