Paul might have been influenced to become a Jewish cantor by his grandmother, but he is certainly not your grandmother’s cantor. Though well versed in traditional Jewish cantorial arts, Paul is known for his work in creating ground breaking progressive music and musical services. Paul sees himself as a cantor for all people, singing spiritual and inspirational music for everyone.
Paul began his cantorial career at Sinai Temple in Los Angeles. He has sung and continues to sing around the country, in Canada as well as at Stephen Wise Temple in Los Angeles where he is Director of B’nai Mitzvah Studies.
He helped create FRIDAY NIGHT LIVE and TORAH IN THE ROUND at Sinai Temple in Los Angeles and the award winning services SHABBAT SINGS and KOLOT for both Friday Night and Shabbat Morning, at Temple Ramat Zion in Los Angeles. In addition he, with Rabbi Michael Graetz, created the award winning booklet/CD PRAY IN DEED as a learning companion to these innovative services.
He is currently at work on a new album and is putting the final touches on his next stage show.
Paul is the recipient of the United Synagogue Gold Award for Learning, the United Synagogue Award for Family Programming, the Men’s Club Western Region Humanitarian Award, Temple Ramat Zion Chayei Olam Award and the Aron HaKodesh Citation of Merit from Sinai Temple.
