Robin was born in the UK in Ilford, Essex in 1945. He immigrated to Israel in 1960 together with his parents and sister. After marrying Jackie (also from England), they lived and worked in Tel Aviv. In 1974 they joined Kibbutz Neve Eitan in the Beit Shean Valley (now called Emek Hamayanot), and stayed there until 2003, after which they moved to Hadera.
The Froumins have four children and six grandchildren, all living in Israel.
