Description

Wayne Allen traces the evolution of the office of synagogue cantor as reflected in the primary sources of Jewish law as well as in Jewish lore from the third century to the present day. Allen explores the ambivalence of both Jewish authorities and the Jewish public toward the cantor and speculates on the future of the position.
