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 Investiture from HUC-JIR.
Cantor Frost is a superb teacher and has spent much of the first part of her career focused on instilling Jewish identity into the youth of Congregation Rodeph Shalom in New York where she was an integral part of the programming and prayer life of a congregation of over 1800 families and served from Investiture until 2006.
In addition to her work as a cantor, she sits on two URJ Commissions and has been performing with Soul on Fire, a theatrical concert of devotional music. 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 two children.
