HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, AUGUST 10, 2018 PAGE 11A By Josefin Dolsten NEWYORK (JTA)--Cantor Philip Sherman gives me a call after having finished two circumcisions before noon on Tuesday. That's a light day, he explains. On Thursday, he will be performing circumcisions for four baby boys; on Friday, he'll do five. Sherman, 62, is a mohel (in fact he was featured as one of "America's Top Mohels" in a 2014 JTA article) and has performed over 20,000 cir- cumcisions, both for Jewish and non-Jewish families. But in between performing mul- tiple circumcisions a day and serving as associate cantor at Congregation Shearith Israel in New York--also known as the Spanish and Portuguese Synagogue---he has another gig: actor. Most recently, the Ortho- dox cantor, who lives in White Plains, New York, appeared in the Netflix hit series "Orange is the New Black," about a women's prison. Though the role was small--he played a judge presiding over a trial involving one of the prison- ers--Sherman says it was his favorite to date. "The really amazing thing about that is that it's a real part in a real show, where I'm not playing a rabbi or cantor or some Jewish guy," he told JTA in a phone interview Tuesday. Sherman has appeared in about 15 other roles in com- mercials, TV series and mov- ies, playing a religious Jew in most of them. He played a rabbi in a 1999 commercial with Whoopi Goldberg for, a now defunct digital currency, and a mohel in the 2011 comedy "Our Idiot Brother," where his appearance was cut from the final movie but made it into the extra materi- als on DVD. Sherman has also been featured as an expert on "Storage Wars," a reality show where the contents of unpaid storage lockers are auctioned off. Sherman's "Orange" scene lasts about a minute and a half, but was shot approximately a dozen times, and Sher- Cantor Philip Sherman has appeared in more than a tozen roles in commercials, TV series and movies, mostly paying a religious Jew. man had to come in another sary of the Bill of Rghts. time to re-recordsome of his Sherman mentioned b the lines.
