Ten Years of Cantorial Training at Abraham Geiger College


Shiru l’Adonai shir chadash… Together with other graduates and the students of Abraham Geiger College, Cantor Isidoro Abramowicz took a fresh take on familiar tunes to mark the 10th anniversary of our cantorial program. The cantors opened a treasure trove of synagogue music from the 19th century until today with all its different pitches, modes, colors and timbres. With popular pieces newly arranged for organ, vocals and string quartet, the concert taught an enthused audience how Jewish sacred music grows and develops. The performance ended with a standing ovation and lively discussions. Yasher koach to Abramowicz who will become the chazzan of Berlin’s Pestalozzistrasse Synagogue by March 1st. A special thank-you to Sara Charney who opened this amazing concert as the representative of Women of Reform Judaism, our dedicated friends and supporters in Northern America.
