Srul Irving Glick Memorial Concert | Holy Blossom Temple

Dear Friends:

I cannot believe it is ten years since we lost one of the great Canadian and Jewish composers, Srul Irving Glick. It is as if he is eternally with us and his musical “Neshamah” radiates almost weekly within the walls of our Temple. His music enhances our services more than occasionally since I am so deeply involved and revere his musical creativity.

Srul Glick was a friend and mentor to me throughout my years as the Hazzan of Holy Blossom Temple. Srul is well known throughout Canada and the world over. His music has been performed on the most impressive concert stages including the Vatican in Rome. His major musical compositions cover the widest gamete of musical expressions from solo works and choral symphonies to chamber choirs and orchestral compositions but his real love was the music for the Synagogue. Here he created an entire repertoire of Cantor/choir in numerous publications.

This short video was taken just a few days ago while visiting my friend, Cantor Efraim Sapir, in Florida. Efraim worked with Srul for eighteen years at Beth Tikvah Synagogue and Herbie Goldstein, a veteran of The Beth Tikvah Choir and a friend of Srul from his teen years, reflect and share some memories. Please take the time to watch and learn more about this great composer and his contribution to our community and the world of Jewish music.
