Cantor Frommer Farewell Tribute

On Saturday, May 30th, we honored Cantor David Frommer and wished him and his family well as they prepare to head to West Point. This is not goodbye...instead we say l’hitraot—see you later.

We salute Cantor David Frommer on his appointment to the position of Jewish chaplain at the United States Military Academy at West Point.

Tribute Book and a special Kolenyu Recording of "Samachti" 

We have produced an official Tribute Book for the event and thank the 100+ congregants for share stories, photos and memories. To download a copy of the Tribute Book as a pdf or to print a copy of your individual page, please click on the "full screen" image in the middle of the book and the download and print options will be at the top of the page.

Click on the play button on the video player below to hear our beautiful Koleynu Choir with Music Director Jonathan Dimmock sing Samachti with Cantor Frommer. This recording was created during the Shelter-In-Place and was edited together from individual music files. Enjoy.

Thank you for your interest in participating in Cantor Frommer's Tribute Book. All submissions received after 1pm today, May 29, will be included in the final book but may not make Saturday night's event. Thank you for understanding.

If you still wish to be included in Cantor Frommer's Tribute Book, we have extended the deadline until, Friday, June 5th at 5pm. For more information, contact Nia Taylor at ntaylor@sherithisrael.org.
