  • Professional Cantors

    Definition

    cantor
    can-tor [kan-ter, -tawr] —noun

    Definition: In Judaism a cantor, also known as a chazzan or hazzan, is the person who leads the congregation in prayer.
    Cantors play an important role in Jewish religious life because music is an important part of Jewish prayer services.

    A variety of cantorial schools offer degrees for people preparing for a career in the cantorate. Professional cantors are ordained clergy.

     

    These cantors work together with synagogue rabbis to lead and educate members of the congregation. The primary role of these cantors is to lead prayer services. If the synagogue has a choir, the cantor will work with them. In addition, professional cantors are generally charged with teaching members of the congregation how to participate in prayer services and read from the Torah. In this role, they often prepare children for their bar and bat mitzvah ceremonies and teach adult education classes. Furthermore, professional cantors will often perform pastoral duties such as conducting weddings, baby namings, funerals and unveilings.

    A novel by one of our own! This is a lovely, heartfelt and humble book about the struggles of a cantor who loves his musical heritage and his calling, yet struggles with very real world issues both in and out of the pulpit. The writing is straightforward, honest and brave, and the book is a good "coming-of-age-for-the-second-time-around" story. 

    Lyle Rockler will be a Keynote Speaker on the morning of Thursday May 22 at the Cantors Assembly 67th Annual Convention, Bonaventure Resort & Spa, in Weston Florida.Join in the fun of reading and discussing this book with your colleagues and meeting the author!
