School for Cantors to Meet Shortage

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The drain of American Jewish congregations on the liturgical forces of European Jewry has created difficulties for many Jewish communities in East European countries.

Because of the fact that many cantors have left their posts and emigrated to America to accept the call of American congregations, there is now a lack of trained cantors. It was therefore decided to open a modern school here to train cantors for the European congregations.
