Richard Tucker’s Cantorial Kiddush

In this video, the great American tenor and cantor Richard Tucker (1913-1975) performs the Shabbat evening blessings over the wine according to the Reform Ashkenazi tradition. Tucker’s musical talent was nurtured from an early age, and he led the prayers in several Reform synagogues including the Brooklyn Jewish Center, an all-inclusive Synagogue Center. Despite poor sound quality, this video can be enjoyed by anyone interested in different musical renditions of Jewish traditions.
