Meet Cantor Charles D. Romalis


L’dor Vador, from generation to generation, is the foundation that has sustained me since I became a cantor. I have served the congregation of Temple Beth Tikvah in Wayne, NJ as their Cantor for over 40 years, and I am grateful to have been an integral part of the lifecycle events of my congregants, friends, family, and colleagues over those years.

I officiate at:

  • Baby Namings
  • Bar and Bat Mitzvahs (Includes training and service)
  • Weddings / Interfaith Weddings
  • Renewal of Vows
  • Funerals and Unveilings

I would be honored to officiate at your special Jewish lifecycle event. I combine my skill, compassion, faith, and music to create meaningful and memorable experiences, no matter the occasion.

Members of my congregation describe me as steadfast, reliable, gentle, compassionate and authentic. I am married to my high school sweetheart, Louise, and have two wonderful children, a son- and daughter-in-law, and two precious grandchildren.

You can reach me via email at or through the contact page of this website.
