Cantor Randy Herman Bio

Descended from performing vaudevillian grandparents on one side, and off-the-boat Eastern European orthodox Jews on the other, Cantor Randy Herman seemed destined to integrate the worlds of musical performance and Judaism.  After growing up in Grand Rapids, MI, and attending the University of Michigan, he worked briefly as an actor before pursuing music fulltime.  As a pianist/singer/songwriter, he performed live and in the studio in a wide variety of contexts, both in the US and abroad.  His cantorial training includes a year of study in Jerusalem, where he sang in the Great Synagogue choir, and a Masters degree/cantorial investiture from the Jewish Theological Seminary in NY.  He served as the cantor of Bet Torah in Westchester County, NY from 2007-2020, and in July became the cantor of Chizuk Amuno Congregation & Schools in Baltimore.  Cantor Herman and his wife Nicole are the proud parents of three-year-old Kaya, and welcomed their son Donovan in March.
