Product Description: 

The tradition of Eastern European Jewish cantorial music is alive and well in modern America in no small part thanks to the efforts of Brooklyn born Cantor Jacob Mendelsohn. Jackie, as everyone calls him, explores the American roots of hazzanut, or Jewish liturgical music, while taking us on a musical voyage that spans the Atlantic. This documentary provides a nostalgic journey through family, neighborhood and tradition.
