Cantor Jack Mendelson is one of America’s most influential cantors, or “chazzanim.” In addition to his day job at Temple Israel Center in White Plains, NY, he also teaches and coaches several days a week at the Reform and Conservative seminaries. The Cantor’s Project picks up where director Erik Greenberg Anjou’s previous A Cantor’s Tale left off. With only two years left on Jack’s current synagogue contract, and amidst diminished budgets and an ultra-competitive job market for spiritual leaders, Jack and his passionate campaign for traditional prayer modes are far from an assured legacy.
