Cantorial Art:
A Tradition Transcending Generations

The Cantor Jacob Segall

Jacob Segall was born in Tel Aviv, Israel in 1966 in a home that cantorial art is a tradition that transcends generations.

Segalls father, born 1923 in Berlin, is a musician and cantor. His cantorial training began in his childhood, when he learned Chazanut, music and score reading from the famous Cantor Ravitz and from the famous choir leader Mr. Joseph Rambam, where he gained proficiency in all the nuances of Jewish prayer.

Jacob studied for 8 years at the Israeli Conservatory of Music where he learned to play the violin; harmony, solfege and the history of music. He continued his professional education by studying voice training and music scoring under the tutelage of the well-known Israeli singer and musician, Mati Caspi.

In 2001 he recorded his first album which was a great success. The album was comprised of 11 original songs that he composed, arranged the orchestrations, and sang the vocals.

Over the years, he continued his voice training under the guidance of Mr. Victor Kutik, a senior lecturer at the Tel Aviv Institute of Chazanut headed by the world renowned Cantor Naftali Herstik. During the same time, his father taught him the special Nusach prayers based on the ancient European cantorial tradition, as well as classical cantorial compositions.

Jacob served as cantor at various synagogues throughout Israel, as well as the position of Chief Cantor in the Shikun Heh Central Synagogue in Bnei Brak, Israel.

As he told us, he is  always interested in a Cantorial position for the High Holidays in an Orthodox Synagogue, but he is also able to read from the Torah and blow the Shofar.

But in order for you to get a better sense of his skills, please listen to some home recording samples of the High Holidays.
