Gershon Sirota

Cantor

Gershon Sirota was born in 1874 in Podolia, where his father officiated as the village cantor. As a boy, Sirota frequently assisted his father in leading services at the local synagogue. At the age of 13, Sirota went to visit his grandparents in Odessa and was hired to lead services at the local Bet Hamedrash (small house of prayer), where his grandfather was a member. The board of trustees, and other music professionals in attendance, were taken aback by the young boy’s talent.

1874-1943
