Deerfield-News.com-Deerfield-Beach,Fl- As Deerfield Beaches Jewish community prepares for the Passover Seder.I will defer to Wikipedia and or the Bible for an explanation of the story of Exodus and how it is relived by Jews worldwide.As with many things I was preparing to do a story on Moishe Oysher  who was considered to be among the great cantors of my Great Grandparents and Grandparents generation.

I stumbled onto this while looking for Oyshers traditional Chad Gaya and Dayenu!.

Shulem Lemmer is the future of Jewish and Yiddish songs.His voice is amazing he is truly gifted bringing back some of the best cantorials ever on Youtube and Facebook, for an entirely new Jewish generation of music lovers.
