    Rav Singer was the Chazzan-Shat”z (Cantor) in Devinsk, Russia and later here in Buffalo, his Seforim are very interesting.

    Note, the name is Yehoshua Heschel not Yehoshua He(r)schel.

    Rabbi Yehoshua Herschel Singer was my great grandfather: my mother’s father’s father. He was the 7th or 8th generation hazzan in the family. He came to the USA from Riga. He wrote several books. I have more detais about his life and some photos. What else do you want to know?

    You are right! I just pasted the name. His name was Yehoshua Heschel Singer (ne Chazan) — or, as we know him, Joshua Heschel Singer.

    I’m researching the Singer family (my husband’s mother’s family). We have no knowledge of him being a cantor in Dvinsk. It would be most appreciated if you would tell me your source.

    Thank You,
