Temple Israel’s Cultural Arts Committee presents the Sandra Gamm Memorial Concert, “The Cantor’s Couch” featuring Cantor Jack Mendelson.

“The Cantor’s Couch” is a journey through real-life stories growing up in the 1950s 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 this production.

Book by Mark Bieler, directed by Eleanor Reissa and original songs written and performed by Jonathan Comisar. Watch the trailer here.
