Dr. Naomi Cohn Zentner is an ethnomusicologist interested in the intersections between Ashkenazi music and the Israeli sphere, mainly in the home. Her Masters thesis, gained from McGill University, looked at the Spanish and Portuguese influence on the Ashkenazi liturgy in London in the late 19th century. Her dissertation, written under Prof. Edwin Seroussi, focused on the paraliturgical piyyutim of Zemirot Shabbat sung around the Sabbath table among religious Zionists in Israel, and included ethnographic fieldwork and analysis of extended family repertoires.
