YIOT to Host Joseph Dresdner Memorial Shabbat Chazzanut

The Young Israel of Teaneck (YIOT) will host the Joseph Dresdner, z”l, Memorial Shabbat Chazzanut, April 27-28, featuring the world-renowned Cantor Netanel Hershtik and the Hampton Synagogue Choir conducted by Izchak Haimov. Cantor Hershtik will lead a Carlebach-style Kabbalat Shabbat service on Friday evening, April 27, and will lead both Shacharit and Mussaf during Shabbat services at the 9 a.m. minyan, April 28.

Hershtik is a 14th-generation cantor. His father, Naftali Hershtik, is the former cantor of the Great Synagogue in Jerusalem, where Netanel’s musical talent quickly became apparent through his regular appearances as a child soloist. He has given concerts across the world, including performances with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra and the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra, and at Lincoln Center, the Sydney Opera House and Casino de Paris. He is the first cantor to be invited to perform a cantorial concert at the Kennedy Center. He also holds the distinction of being the first cantor to be invited to perform at the United Nations at a Holocaust remembrance ceremony, in 2006.

The Young Israel of Teaneck is located at 868 Perry Lane in Teaneck. For more information on Shabbat Chazzanut, email [email protected].
