The Cantor’s Couch, is a journey through Cantor Jack Mendelson‘s real life stories growing up in 1950’s Borough Park, Brooklyn. The son of a loving deli owner and an overbearing mother, he 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. It is 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 is Cantor Jonathan Comisar, who wrote original music for this production. The Cantor’s Couch delivers a wonderful performance of original and traditional musical numbers, making for a riveting 90 minute musical theater experience.

Join us for Shabbat Shira on January 21 as we host Cantor Jack Mendelson who will be performing his exquisite one-man show, “The Cantors Couch.”  Don’t miss this wonderful evening of music, laughter and poignant Jewish storytelling as we are entertained by one of the foremost cantors and teachers of our generation.
