Beth Jacob Gets A Taste Of Their New Chazzan

Last Shabbat the new cantor Nati Baram davenned – and dazzled the congregation with a broad spectrum of talent on display. He showed off his soul and his singing talents : Getting the community to participate in group-sing; the Kedushah included parts of O Sole Mio – and there was a good dose of Carlebach and some fun sprinkled in too.

All in all a recipe for a total mench leading his new community in joyous song. He came into LA for a few days – and hopes are high that the visa issues will be resolved shortly after Pesach.
