Yossele (Josef) Rosenblatt

A great voice among the cantors
Born in Bila Tserka in Ukraine, Rosenblatt starts his career as member of the synagogue choir...

At the age of 18 years old, he becomes cantor and emigrates in 1912 in the United States, where he leads services in a Harlem Orthodox community.

Believed to be the best cantor of his time, his vocal abilities are appreciated even beyond the Jewish circle.
We can hear one characteristic of his style, the « krekhtz », an emotional singing weep.
