In June, New York will see a $500,000 citywide, four-day celebration commemorating the 50th anniversaries of the Cantors Assembly and the state of Israel, including what is billed as the world's largest live outdoor event in the organization's honor. And it took three cantors from Los Angeles to put it together. "I don't think at first anybody believed it," said Nate Lam, a cantor at the Stephen S. Wise Temple in Bel-Air and chairman of the event.

The ancient art of the Jewish cantor, whose passionate solo singing enlivens synagogue services, is an endangered musical species. That makes "Cantors Live 2000" Sunday at Valley Beth Shalom in Encino more than just entertainment. Organized by Herschel Fox, one of the few full-time cantors in the Los Angeles area, "Cantors Live" features guest cantors flown in from afar.

Jewish history is laden with paradox, and there is no better example than the dispersion of the Jewish people 2,000 years ago--a tragic cataclysm that led, among other things, to the phenomenal diversity of Jewish musical expression evident today. The breadth of the Jewish vocal tradition will be on display this evening at Stephen S. Wise Temple in Los Angeles, where a weekend-long program concludes with a cantorial concert featuring two of the art form's leading exponents.

A South County cantor is traveling this weekend to the German town where her late father was rabbi to sing at a ceremony in his honor. In a far cry from the day 60 years ago when her father escaped the Nazi regime with the help of a sympathetic SS chief, Shula Kalir-Merton will offer liturgical music and contemporary Israeli songs Tuesday at an exhibit commemorating 300 years of Jewish history in the region.

With House Speaker John A. Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor on separate overseas trips, Democrats are taking shots in their absence.   A Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee site -- whereintheoworldisjohnboehner.com -- pounces on the GOP leaders for their globetrotting during congressional recess, when Democrats say they ought be at work on a tax cut plan. Of course, globetrotting during congressional recess is a time-honored, bipartisan tradition, so the dig does lose some of its punch.

Eight. That's how many times those who turned to Univision, the Spanish-language network, to watch the Major League Soccer and FIFA all-star games at Giants Stadium on Sunday heard the word. It's not something they could have missed. It's an unmistakable sound, a cry from the heart, says the man who delivered it. "Gooooooooooooal!" Just how many vowels the word contains is uncertain. It depends on the nature of the goal, and the state of Andres Cantor's lungs.
