Barry Herman was born in Johannesburg South Africa. He has a background in retail having worked for many blue Chip companies in South Africa before leaving to start his own business. The last business that Barry was involved in before immigrating to the United States, was Retail Fashion Services, a retail consulting company of which Barry was the founder and Managing Director. Barry immigrated with his family to the USA in November 2001 to pursue an opportunity in the retail/wholesale lighting industry.

Barry also has a background in music, playing various musical instruments. Barry has also conducted various Shul Choirs in South Africa, including four years with the Pine Street Shul Choir. At that time, he was the youngest conductor of an established Shul Choir in South Africa.  He studied conducting under the direction of the late Gus Levy, founding Musical Director of the Johannesburg Jewish Male Choir, recognized as one of the foremost Jewish Choirs in the world. He is also the Musical Director and conductor of the Atlanta Jewish Male choir as well as The AA’s own Shul Choir.

Barry joined AA Synagogue as Director of Liturgical Music in September 2005 and is currently the Executive Director/Liturgical Music Director, a position that he has held since April 2008.  Barry very much enjoys the interaction with families and members of our congregation, especially Bnaimitzvah children as well as being a part of the AA Shul Choir, the first volunteer choir at the AA.

Barry is married to Heidi for 19 years and has two children, Daniel 17 and Aaron 16.
