in dialogue with


Abraham Lubin

Cantor Abraham Lubin
Past-President of the Cantors Assembly

Cantor Matthew Austerklein engages in dialogue with his mentor and friend, Cantor Abraham Lubin, talking about his sixty-five years as a cantor across three continents. Cantor Lubin is a graduate of Jews College (UK) under Leo Bryll, B.A. from Cincinnati Conservatory, M.A. from DePaul University, and an AbD from University of Chicago studying Cantor Salomon Sulzer. His unique and expansive cantorial career has included scholarship, musical performances across all Jewish movements, and leadership in the Cantors Assembly, where he served as President and successfully advocated for the admission of female cantors. Cantor Lubin will also engage with Cantor Austerklein on the modern cantorate, and the latter’s research and hopes for the profession in a transforming world.
