AJMF9 Cantor’s Couch

Temple Beth Tikvah
March 11
1:00 pm show

The Cantor’s Couch (book by Mark Bieler), a journey through Cantor Jack Mendelson’s real life stories growing up in the 1950’s in Borough Park, Brooklyn. The son of a loving deli owner and an overbearing mother, Cantor Mendelson paints a picture of a bygone day in Jewish America when Jews would flock to synagogue to hear the golden voices of cantors as if it were a concert hall. He recounts a relatable story of a childhood riddled with anxiety and doubt, mixed with joyous memories of music and celebration — all told with the expertise and comic timing of a master storyteller. Cantor Mendelson’s collaborator and accompanist will be Cantor Jonathan Comisar, who wrote original music for the production.
