Baruch Dayan HaEmes: Cantor Macy Nulman z"l

«The Yeshiva University Family is saddened by the passing of
Former Director of the Philip and Sarah Belz School of Jewish Music at Yeshiva University, a Founder of the Cantorial Council of America, a pioneer in Cantorial and Jewish music education and author of numerous books and journals on Jewish music and liturgy. »
B"H I attended quite a few courses at the Belz school over the years. Cantor Nulman was a consummate professional and helped to raise the Modern Orthodox "cantorate" to a higher level of professionalism. His book "The Encyclopedia of Jewish Liturgy" is a great quick reference guide for us.

While I only chatted with him a few times -- most of his influence on me was indirect -- he, nevertheless, will be missed as a mentor.

To his family, Hamakom Y'nachem ....

Shalom and Regards,
