To honour the Days of Awe between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, TJFF is proud to offer a special online screening and discussion for the Toronto Premiere of 'A Cantor’s Head'
Available to view Tuesday, September 22 - Thursday, September 24
Dubbed the “Michael Jordan of Hazzanut”, Cantor Jacob Mendelson is suddenly let go by the Temple where he has served for 28 years. As he prepares for his final Yom Kippur services, he ponders the decline of traditional Jewish sacred music amidst growing preferences for younger cantors with more modern and engaging liturgical styles.
From filmmaker Erik Greenberg Anjou, whose earlier film A Cantor’s Tale wowed TJFF audiences.
Zoom Discussion and Reflection on Thursday, September 24 at 8:00PM
Filmmaker Erik Greenberg Anjou and Cantor Jacob Mendelson
Moderated by TJFF Past-Chair/Darchei Noam Cantorial Soloist Phyllis Angel Greenberg
