Rabbi to Turn over Royalties Made from Recording to North, South Vietnam Orphans

Abraham L. Feinberg, rabbi emeritus of Holy Blossom Temple in Toronto and known as an anti-Vietnam war activist, has produced an album of songs under the label of Vanguard Records in New York. The album contains 10 songs including Leonard Cohen’s anti-war “Story of Isaac,” “Simple Child” by Robbie MacNeill, “Warm Traitor’s Breath” by Arthur Gee, “I Shall Be Released” by Bob Dylan and “Bells of St. Pierre” by Michael Stanbury. Rabbi Feinberg will turn his royalties over to the orphans and maimed children of North and South Vietnam. Now 71, Rabbi Feinberg is the son of a Chazan. In the early 1930’s he left the rabbinate for several years and was a popular radio singer (“Anthony Frome”) on the NBC network.
