Helen and Irving Sunshine Memorial Concert|
Yaakov Yanky Lemmer was born and raised in the Boro Park section of Brooklyn, where many of the great cantors of the Golden Age used to sing. His earliest performances took place in the Beth E-l synagogue, where many of the greats held positions in the early years of the 20th century. With an ensemble led by Frank London of the Klezmatics, Yaakov brings fresh interpretations to traditional liturgical prayers and Hasidic nigunim as well as to some more obscure Yiddish songs. Yaakov is a special education therapist, and he currently serves as head cantor of Lincoln Square Synagogue in Manhattan. This will be Yaakovs Yidstock debut.
