Song: “V’al Yedel Avadecha” Zavel Kwartin
I didn’t choose to be a cantor, rather I responded to a sacred calling: to touch people’s lives at their most vulnerable moments. to enhance their joy and ease their sorrow. Jewish music is the perfect vehicle for this purpose. Music even more than words can uplift the soul, and reach our neshamah, the holy spark of the divine within each of us. Music transcends and bridges languages, cultures, ages and social standing. — Marcus Feldman
