River Edge—Yonatan Katz, a seventh grader at RYNJ and Bergenfield resident, joined the Yeshiva Boys Choir 4½ years ago as its first Bergen County member (since then, six Bergen County residents have joined). Yonatan was recently a guest on Nachum Segal’s morning radio show, “JM in the AM.” Nachum interviewed him about his experiences in the choir, the amount of time that goes into teaching the challenging choreography that accompanies each song, and the different concerts at which he has performed, such as in Toronto, Baltimore, Florida, and the tri-state area, including the HASC concert and the Chai Lifeline Concert.

Yonatan told Nachum that his best experience was performing live on NBC’s Morning Show two years ago on Chanukah. Yonatan commented how even though a lot of time and work goes into being in the choir, he enjoys it very much and finds it very rewarding.
