The Cantor’s Couch

Join us on Wednesday June 3rd at 7 PM for an extraordinary evening performance.  World-renowned cantor Jack Mendelson brings his one-man show THE CANTOR’S COUCH to the East Midwood Jewish Center.  THE CANTOR’S COUCH takes the audience through the real-life stories of Cantor Mendelson growing up in 1950’s Borough Park.  The son of a loving deli owner and an overbearing mother, Cantor Mendelson paints a picture of a bygone day in Jewish America when Jews would flock to the synagogue to hear the golden voices of cantors as if it were a concert hall.  He recounts 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.  Audiences roll with laughter and shed a tear or two, and everyone leaves wanting more.  Featuring original music by Jonathan Comisar.
