David Gershon – Chazzan and Director of Music

Some of you probably grew up watching this face on TV singing with his wife, Cantor Judy Adelman Gershon, together known to millions of families as “Judy & David”. But unless you happened to come to his “Chanukah Palooza” shows, you probably didn’t know that David’s first and enduring connection to music has always been as a Jewish song leader. With the touring life gratefully behind him, David now concentrates his time on using music to unite, move, and inspire people of all ages – whether as Chair of Education Arts Canada, or as our new Chazzan and Director of Music. David is the recipient of the Juno award, the SOCAN award, and the Parent’s Choice Gold Award. He has produced and co-starred in two national TV series and has created dozens of recordings and touring musicals. David earned his BA at Brandeis University. By far, his favourite accomplishment is being dad to Jared, Abigail, and Zev and husband to Judy. He can’t wait to make music with his new DJC musical family!
