Shabbat Service for the Beginning Hazzan
2. Arvit L'Shabbat (Ma'ariv)
Cantor Spiro was born and grew up in Jerusalem. As a boy, he worked under a famous cantor, was enrolled at a cantorial institute and attended Yeshiva. He obtained his teaching certificate and continued on from his conservatory in Jerusalem to study at Julliard. In his words, “Nusach is the cement that holds synagogue music together.” He took pride in teaching nusach to the young people of his congregation as well as to the youth of the movement (Conservative) at large, in the hope that it will continue for generations to come.
