I’m happy to share my Omer Counting Guide for 2017. Someone twisted my arm (Ross… I’m looking at you!), so I did this once again. Please look it over once to make sure I didn’t goof on dates or Hebrew. Since being off the pulpit, I might have lost my ability to actually count! But seriously, do use this in good health, and Happy Passover!
Cantor Erik Contzius is a versatile baritone, a creative composer, and a dynamic performer. His Jewish repertoire is eclectic, ranging from the highly classical (performing the Ernest Bloch "Sacred Service" in Bulgaria, Canada, and Israel) to traditional hazzanut (appearing on the stage of the Stardust Ballroom at Kutsher's Hotel in the Catskills), to dynamic vocal jazz (touring with the Afro-Semitic Experience!). Cantor Contzius' compositions have been performed by cantors and choirs across the United States and can be heard on his album, "Teach My Lips a Blessing."
