Cantor David Frommer joins Shomrei Torah in July 2013. The Manhattan native received his B.A. in history with honors from Yale University and sang with Magevet, Yale’s Jewish a cappella group, performing across the US and internationally in Canada, Europe and the UK. After college, David volunteered for fifteen months as a combat soldier in the Nachal Infantry Division of the Israel Defense Forces, where he served with distinction in the West Bank.
