Cantor Mark Spindler

was born and raised in Scranton, Pennsylvania, and attended Yeshiva University and graduated from the Cantors' Institute. Prior to accepting his cantorial position in Buffalo, “Cantor Mark” served congregations Brothers of Israel in Trenton, New Jersey, and Lake Hiawatha Jewish Center in New Jersey. Cantor Spindler has been serving our congregation since 1985.

Aside from primary responsibilities of leading Shabbat and Holiday services through the year, Cantor Mark’s pride lies in the leadership and instruction he provides our entire membership. He capably teaches our students to prepare for Bar/Bat Mitzvah and those interested are taught the melodies to lead the entire congregation in Musaf Services. Cantor Mark always has a dedicated group of adult individuals studying Torah Trope, as well.

The congregation honored Cantor Spindler with a gala on November 17, 2012.
