Services will be led by Cantor Dudu Fisher, Chazzan Tzali Camissar, celebrated cantor at The Shul of Bal Harbor and Chazzan Rachmiel Andrusier of New York. A special Hazzan will once again lead the Sephardic Minyan.
Dudu Fisher needs no introduction. The son of a Holocaust survivor, Dudu began cantorial studies at age 22, after his discharge from the army. He was the cantor at the Great Synagogue in Tel Aviv, followed by four years in South Africa. For over 20 years, he was the High Holidays cantor at Kutsher's Hotel in the Catskills and in 2005 he became the Chief Cantor for the Hampton Synagogue in Westhampton Beach, New York.
Dudu is also recognized for playing Jean Valjean, the leading role of Les Misérables on Broadway, in London and Israel. Fisher was the first performer excused from Friday night and Saturday performances, as he is an Orthodox Jew and was not able to perform because of the Sabbath.
This is the very first time Dudu will be leading High Holiday services in Florida. We are so fortunate and extremely excited to be able to host this once in a lifetime voice as our lead Chazzan for the High Holidays 2017. Reserve today and you will undoubtedly enjoy his Rosh Hashana melodies and his recital of the solemn Kol Nidrei prayer.
