Cantor Berkovits

It is a pleasure to be back in Halifax as your High Holy Day cantor. As members of the Beth Israel, Roz and I look forward to assisting the Congregation as volunteers when we are in town.

For those who do not know, the Beth Israel was my first position as a professional cantor. Just a quick review, in case you were wondering where we have been since leaving Halifax in 1971. I have been a cantor in Halifax, Pittsfield, Omaha, Orlando {where our son David was born}, Charleston {where our son Adam was born}, Cleveland, Syracuse, Palm Beach Gardens, Coconut Creek, Boca Raton, Long Island and Boynton Beach.

Roz and I are looking forward to spending our first Yom Tov in 44 years at the Beth Israel with our family and friends, both old and new. I think that it is amazing to be able to complete my career here, where it first began.

Wishing you all a Shana Tova umetuka. See you in shul….and remember to sing along.
