  1. Jesse,

    As a matter of fact we did this starting last year at Keneseth Israel in Louisville, KY.

    Wht we did was use Jewish Baseball players #’s. Another member and I designed and trademarked the special omer counter. if I can find a pic, or have one taken, I’ll e-mail it to you. I’ll need your e-mail to do so.

    Hello, You mentioned on one of the pages an ashrei melody of Cantor Brandhandler z”l.
    Would you be kind enough to record the first few lines and send by email. Cantor Brandhandler was my childhood chazan at Ner Tamid where my father was the Rabbi from 1961-1972. Alternatively, you could send it by whatsapp to +972525340900. Thanks so much

    Thanks so much!
    Do you by any chance have access to any other Cantor Brandhandler melodies?
    Does the Cantorial Institute have any kind of a recordings archive?
    Thanks again!
