For my Cantor

My Cantor’s wife and I collaborated on a special gift to celebrate her husband’s 10th anniversary with the synagogue.  I stitched a custom atarah with a verse from Psalms 104:33 “I will sing to the LORD as long as I live; all my life I will chant hymns to my God.”  It makes a bold statement stitched in bright red thread on his black and white woven tallit.  A few notes are sprinkled above and below the text and the ends have treble and bass clefs.  It was a joy to make it for him (and even more fun sneaking the tallit out of his office overnight before he realized it was missing!)
