Cantor Jennifer Frost began her tenure at BJBE in July 2006 after several years of service as the Associate Cantor at Rodeph Sholom in New York City. She was born in Chicago and was raised in Los Angeles where she fostered her love of Jewish music under the direction of Cantor Nathan Lam at Steven S. Wise Temple and ultimately led to a Masters Degree in Sacred Music and Cantorial Ordination from HUC-JIR.
Cantor Frost is a superb teacher and has spent much of her career focused on helping individuals find their portals into Jewish life and creating their Jewish identity. She is an integral part of programming and prayer life here at BJBE.
In addition to her work as a cantor, she sits on the executive board of the American Conference of Cantors where she is the co-chair of the Membership Committee. She is proud to represent the ACC on two URJ commissions: the Commission on Worship Music and Religious Living and the Campaign for Youth Engagement. Cantor Frost has performed and recorded with some of the shining stars of Jewish music today, most notably Danny Maseng and has been a part of his theatrical performance, Soul on Fire. Having recorded both Soul on Fire and Labor of Love, the group has toured throughout the United States. Cantor Frost is married to Rabbi Richard Prass and lives in Deerfield with their three children, Lyla, Ruth, and David.
