The Museum's "Great Cantors" exhibition

The Museum of Family History now has filled its "Great Cantors" room with short bios, photos, sound and video clips of eight well-known cantors, i.e. Cantors Yossele Rosenblatt, Mordechai Hershman, Gershon Sirota, Moshe Koussevitzky, Zavel Kwartin, David Roitman, as well as Richard Tucker (pictured left in 1933, the famed tenor who was also a chazzan) and Moishe Oysher (a chazzan as well as star of a number of Yiddish films.)

You can visit the "Great Cantors" room at www.museumoffamilyhistory.com/cantors.htm .
Webpages about other well-known cantors will be added to the room in the near future.
