TODAY: Jewish Cantors Dedicate Yom Tefilah Service for Leiby Kletzky

As reported by vinnews Brooklyn, NY - A special prayer service by Orthodox Leading Cantors in memory of Leiby Kletzky will take place tonight Wednesday evening at 8:00 pm at Congregation Anshe Sfard, 4502 14th Avenue, Brooklyn, N.Y.

Charlie Bernhaut founder of Cantors World who organized the event told VIN News, traditionally, in times of crisis, Jews have always come together, as a “tzibur”/congregation to express their anguish and to pray for comfort for the bereaved”. “The most appropriate words of comfort are found in Tehilim/Psalms and in the siddur. The cantor/‘Shaliach Tzibur’ – is the messenger of the congregation elevating their prayers to HaShem. The community shares with the Kletzky family the pain and grief from this tragedy. This prayer service is a fitting and appropriate response to comfort the bereaved. said Bernhaut”.

Some of the world’s leading cantors will lead the prayers, including Cantors Netanel Herstik, Yanky Lemmer, Benzion Miller, Shimmy Miller, Zevi Muller and Yaakov Rosenfeld. The choir will be led by Yitzchak Haimov.
