Contact Jewish Music Week in Toronto

Featuring Cantors Benjamin Maissner, Tibor Kovari, Simon Spiro and Aaron Bensoussan
The Jewish Music Week tradition continues, but with a twist. Although Shabbat ends, the music and spirit of Shabbat don’t have to stop. As we come together to carry out the end of Shabbat and begin a new week with wonderful music, our panel of international Cantors, all based now in Toronto, will regale us with entertaining stories of their varied backgrounds and contrasting careers. The Banter will be interspersed with wonderful music as the Cantors lead us in a Melaveh Malka Singalong!  With special musical welcome from Shaarei Shomayim’s Zvi Katzman.
If you have a question for our panel, please email it before May 13 to Please indicate if it is a question for the entire panel or directed to one or more Cantor specifically.
Cantor Tibor Kovar (Romania), Cantor Benjamin Maissner (Israel), Cantor Simon Spiro (England), Cantor Aaron Bensoussan (Morocco) are not only four of the city’s leading Hazzanim, but they are riotously funny when put together onstage. No more biographical information here – come hear more by attending!
