Praise for Immunim III

"I am providing your three books to my CICA students as their basic Nusa texts. There has not been anything like them."

azzan Alberto Mizrachi, Anshe Emet Synagogue, Chicago, IL


"Charles Davidson's extensive and scholarly work on Nusa, Sefer Hadrakhah, is perhaps the most important book on this subject since the publication of Baer's Ba'al Tefillah. We encourage every colleague to purchase this volume for his/her library."

azzan Stephen J. Stein, Executive Vice President, The Cantors Assembly of America

 

"In this book, Davidson has managed to bottle both the wisdom and the musicality of his teacher, Max Wohlberg z"l. plus his own vast experience of over four decades of teaching Nusa  to   generations of cantors. He has poured his knowledge and teaching soul into the pages of this book, and all of us who teach Nusa owe him enormous gratitude, for future students will hear him speaking-and singing-to them through these pages."

azzan Joel Caplan, Instructor Jewish Theological Seminary

 

" . . . a truly usable reference work for home-or classroom-use."

Dr. Joseph A. Levine, Author and Scholar

 

" . . . a sensational work . . . An important and wonderful gift."

azzan Stephen Stein, Executive Director, The Cantor's Assembly

 

"This comprehensive survey of the liturgical year will be an invaluable source for cantors of all movements."  

Dr. Bruce Ruben, Dean, Hebrew Union College, School of Sacred Music


"Sefer Hadrakhah is a fabulous resource for all students of traditional Ashkenazi synagogue chant. Cantor Dr. Davidson's work is beautifully annotated, a thorough and accessible presentation of Nusa Hatefillah; a must for every cantor and Jewish musician."

Dr. Brian Mayer, Acting Dean, Hebrew College, Boston
