CANTOR JOSH PERLMAN has been the Cantor at B’nai Israel Congregation in Rockville, Maryland since February 2001, after serving in Albuquerque, New Mexico for ten years.  Cantor Josh studied at Rhode Island College in Providence and later with his father, Hazzan Ivan Perlman, in preparation for becoming a Hazzan of the Cantors Assembly.

During his years as a Hazzan, Josh has performed in concerts around the United States, and Israel.  He also led services and performed in concert tour with his father in Norway, Finland and Sweden for Keren Hayesod.  His performances have benefitted various communities, supported growing congregations, and raised funds for organizations dedicated to Tikun Olam. Josh is often a guest of public and private schools, educating youth about Judaism. He is actively involved with the elderly in the community, and continues to conduct services for them regularly.  His connection with the youth through his “Mitzvah Program” continues to grow as well as the “Mitzvah Bank”, a collection of hundreds of Mitzvah projects locally and globally.  Cantor Josh is involved with the Keneset Israel program, a group of Ma-kom communities who have embarked on several initiatives to re-envision our connection to Israel with the synagogue as the natural place to deepen that relationship.

Cantor Josh is a member of the Executive Committee of the Cantors Assembly and the ethics committee.  He also serves as the chairperson for fundraising.

Josh and his wife Sherri (whose father was also a Cantor) have two children and live in Germantown.
