Beth Jacob Ready For A New Cantor

The current cantor is old school. I think the shul is ready for someone new. I think they want more congregational singing. Most Jews I know prefer congregational singing to listening to a cantorial solo. Dennis Prager in particular is a big advocate of congregational singing.

Bath Jacob’s current cantor, Netanel Baram, is looking for a new position. I thought he was headed for Germany but that is not final and it may not work out.
