Norman Cohen Falah

Temple Sinai of North Dade
North Miami Beach, Florida

Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Norman Cohen Falah arrived in North Miami Beach in 2012 to serve Temple Sinai of North Dade as Cantor. Cohen Falah is the son of an Ashkenazi mother and a Sephardic father with both traditions bringing a strong influence on his upbringing, inspiring him to pursue a lifelong celebration of the two cultures. In his early twenties, Cohen Falah pursued the study of Hazzanut at the Latin-American Rabbinical Seminary. He also studied guitar and piano at the Conservatorio Nacional de Música in Buenos Aires. After many years serving as Cantor in Argentina and in order to develop his career, he moved to the Netherlands to become the Cantor at the Liberal Jewish Community in Amsterdam, a position he held until July 2005. He then moved to London to serve Belsize Square Synagogue. Cohen Falah has written many songs, among them several liturgical compositions, some of which are currently sung at congregations across Latin-America. His last CD, Tefilatina! A Celebration Of Jewish Music With A Latin Twist, portrays a wide spectrum of music from Latin American Jewish liturgy to Modern Hebrew songs, from Sephardic to Yiddish music, and from Boleros to Tango. Cohen Falah sings in several languages, in a variety of styles and for all ages. In addition to  liturgical music, he specializes in Sephardic music and sings Tango, honoring his Sephardic and Argentine roots.
