Cantor David Reinwald, a Chicago native, has been the cantor of Temple Beth Sholom since 2010. With a passion for music of all styles, Cantor Reinwald considers himself a music aficionado. He holds a Bachelors in Music, Media, and Jewish Studies from Indiana University – Bloomington and was ordained as a cantor by the Hebrew Union College – Jewish Institute of Religion (HUC-JIR) in New York City in 2006.
Cantor Reinwald is inspired by Jewish and cantorial music that is both classic and contemporary and has a specialization in music written and performed during the Holocaust. Out of his master’s thesis research, Cantor Reinwald created an hour-long transformative experience and performance entitled Cabaret of the Holocaust: Notes of Satire from the Stages, Cafes, and Streets of the Ghettos. His research is archived in the collections of the U.S. Holocaust Museum in Washington D.C. and at Yad Vashem in Israel.
Prior to joining the TBS staff, Cantor Reinwald has served Temple Anshe Sholom of Olympia Fields, IL, Congregation Beth Israel of Austin, TX and Temple Beth-El of Jersey City, NJ. He also spent a summer working as a hospital chaplain at Beth Israel Hospital in NYC’s East Village. He is a member of the American Conference of Cantors Executive Board, where he has served on various committees, and is also a past chair of the student recruitment committee of the HUC-JIR Debbie Friedman School of Sacred Music Alumni Association. The cantor’s debut album, Here I Stand, was released in September 2011. He is the creator and host of the unique podcast Tropeful, studying Torah through the perspective of the trope (cantillation) system. Cantor Reinwald is an advocate for foster youth through CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of Orange County and a passionate representative for the work this incredible organization does on behalf of children in the foster care system.
Cantor Reinwald has been an integral part of our TBS family for the past 12 years. He has been there for you and your families during joyous moments and sad times as well. He has taught music to our youngest students in pre-school and religious school and has made our teens shine at their B’nei Mitzvah services. Cantor has brought so much spirituality with his beautiful voice and his presence during Shabbat, High Holy Day services and Temple events throughout the years. He has been the glue that has held our congregation together during the pandemic. He will be missed! All proceeds from the auction benefit the programs and services TBS provides to our congregation.
