Moishe Oysher - Passover Seder, Kol Nidrei & Chanukah Party

Born in 1906 in Lipkon (Bessarabia), Moishe Oysher is a descendant of 6 generations of hazzanim (cantors). In 1921 he leaves for Canada to join his father who emigrated a few years earlier.

Gifted with a particuliar voice, he starts a career as a cantor and actor of Yiddish theatre. He also plays in three Yiddish movies and performs in his last movie « Singing in the Dark » in 1956, inwhich he performs a survivor from the holocaust, suffering of amnesia and who becomes a singer in USA.

Two years later in 1958, he dies in New Rochelle in New-York state.
