FRAMINGHAM _ Temple Beth Am is hosting A Cantor’s Musical Journey with Cantor David Wolff on December 10.
Tickets are available now for the 8 p.m. event. Ticket prices are $25 and $40, with $18 students tickets.
A dessert reception will follow the Saturday night concert.
Cantor David Wolff joined Temple Beth Am in July 2020 after spending two years as a cantorial intern.
He was ordained at Hebrew College in June 2020.
He brings pulpit experience from Temple Beth Elohim in Wellesley, Adas Israel Congregation in Washington D.C., and Congregation Beit Chaverim in Maryland, in addition to almost 10 years of work experience in music and religious education.
Cantor Wolff graduated from Amherst College with a degree in music composition before studying Hebrew at Ulpan Gordon in Tel Aviv. He earned a Master of Music in Voice and Music Education from the University of Michigan and Master of Arts in Jewish Education from Hebrew College. Before becoming a cantor, Cantor Wolff was an opera performer and a music educator in a low-income public elementary school in Maryland for 5 years. David was greatly influenced by his grandparent’s journey from Germany to Israel and his early experiences in the Jewish Community in Washington D.C.
“I love using music to create a moving spiritual experience for a congregation. Being a cantor resonates with my Jewish identity, my family’s rich Jewish history, my love for music, and my desire to serve others. When I sing in shul, I work to create the most meaningful and beautiful music, but not to glorify myself. I sing to glorify our God-given capacity for feeling, for beauty, for music, and for togetherness.”
