Beth Israel Congregation Bagel Brunch
A Double Portion: My Service in the
United States Army and the Israeli Defense Forces
Time travel and space travel. You might not have expected military life to involve either of these, at least at David Frommer's junior rank, but that's sort of exactly what happened. Pack your bagels and journey to a world of misunderstandings, moral dilemmas and matchless satisfaction.
Cantor David Frommer received his B.A. in History with Honors from Yale University After college, David volunteered for fifteen months as a combat soldier in the Israel Defense Forces, where he served with distinction. During the next five years he pursued his cantorial studies at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute and trained as a chaplain with the New York Army National Guard. Following his investiture from HUC-JIR, David deployed overseas as the first-ever cantor to serve as a chaplain in the US military, providing religious support for Jewish soldiers and civilians stationed in Afghanistan, Kuwait, Jordan and Qatar.
