Meet Cantor David

Cantor David Margules

Cantor David Margules’ beautiful tenor voice has enhanced and blessed members of Congregation Rodef Sholom since 1991.  As the synagogue’s cantor and musical director, he choreographs services and leads the congregation in traditional prayers and new arrangements – enjoining them to sing out with him and the rabbis. 

Under Cantor David’s leadership, Shabbat services are joyful and musical.  He works with a variety of musicians and brings new talents – often young people – to the pulpit.  Through his tutorship, teens (and adults) learn the blessings and parshas for b’nai mitzvah.

Cantor David is treasurer of American Conference of Cantors, where he is also a mentor.  He has joined other U.S. cantors to sing at the Vatican and each year participates in the Blessing of the Boats at Tiburon’s Corinthian Yacht Club.  He is an avid golfer and a member of the champion Rodef Sholom Rebels softball team. 

A native of New York, he earned a B.A. degree in music in 1976 from Ithaca College and an M.A. in sacred music from the Hebrew Union College – Jewish Institute of Religion in 1987. Before joining Rodef Sholom, he served as cantor at Temple Sinai in Lawrence, New York.  He is married to Marney Margules and they have two children, Benjamin and Danielle.
