The New York Cantors

presented by the Jewish Federation of Northern New Jersey

It all started as a project for PBS when three young cantors were brought together in Amsterdam’s revered 17th century Portuguese Synagogue for a concert of Jewish sacred and secular music arranged for orchestra and choir. See a reprisal of that classic performance with The New York Cantors, who all serve synagogues in New York. Brooklyn-born Yaakov (Yanky) Lemmer is Head Cantor of the Lincoln Square Synagogue and has served in Fort Lee and Englewood. Israel-native Azi Schwartz is Cantor at Park Avenue Synagogue. Netanel Hershtik serves as Cantor at The Hampton Synagogue, Westhampton Beach.

Some of the most beautiful songs in the Jewish musical history are prayers sung by cantors during shabbat services. For this concert these ancient songs have been given splendid new arrangements by the accomplished Dutch composer/arranger Bob Zimmerman. The program also includes favorite secular songs evoking memories of Jewish tradition and its rich musical culture, as well as music with a nod to Broadway.
