  • One audio cassette tape. Cantor Joel Fox sings and plays piano. Two pieces he performs are without titles, but part of the text can be found on the index sheet. They begin as follows: "The whole world is a very narrow bridge…" and "Don't walk in front of me…". He also performs a song about/for Yom Kippur. Continues on C96-128. A cantor (Latin for "singer") is often called a hazzan in the Jewish church. This person leads the synagogue in singing. Fox was from Dallas, Texas. As a teen, his family moved to Israel. While there, Fox attended the Rubin Academy of Art and Israel Institute of Cantorial Art. From 1989 to 1992, he served in the Israel Defense Force, then moved North Florida, where he became the Jacksonville Jewish Center's cantor. He later was the cantor for Atlanta's Ahavath Achim Synagogue.
