Lea Kalisch

Lea Kalisch aka REBBETZIN LEA is a Swiss-born, NYC-bred Jewish singer, actor, dancer and entertainer.

In 2020 she became known as the "Eshet Chayil of Hip Hop" with her debut single and music video of the same name. She has since been stopped on the street by strangers recognizing her as the #shtreimalgirl. Lea creates eclectic, JEWCY music, blending multiple languages and styles like a smoothie. From hasidic to hip hop, from rap to rumba- she does it all. She's a Shtetl Neshume and a Jewish glamour QUEEN.


Multicultural, multilingual cabaret, full of Yiddishkayt! Lea will make you cry with one eye and laugh with the other.
