Isaac J Cabasso

Biography

Born in Brooklyn, New York, Isaac J. Cabasso was brought up in the Syrian Brooklyn community and was influenced by the generation of Hakham Moshe Ashear, Ezra and Naftali A. Tawil, Eliahou Menaged, Gabriel A. Shrem, and his uncle, Ezra Sayegh.  Isaac Cabasso and his uncle Mickey Kairey were students of Hakham Eliahou Menaged.

Isaac Cabasso is affectionately known as “Cabby” and his beautiful hazzanut, delivered by his mellifluous voice, represents the authentic customs of the Aleppo Jewish community.

Isaac Cabasso was the official cantor of the Community Junion League (the Youth Congregation) in 1959 and later joined Congregation Beth Torah, where, nearly 60 years later, he is still currently the hazzan alongside famed cantor Yehezkel Zion.  He is also on the board of Beit Edmund Safra Sephardic Synagogue in Aventura, Florida.  He is a senior advisor to the Sephardic Pizmonim Project and has recorded over a hundred pizmonim recordings throughout his career.  Cabasso was also on the original pizmonim book committee in 1959.

Isaac was married to Claire Mishaan a’h, and has four daughters: Marilyn Tawil, Lorie Jonas, Debbie Rahmey and Ellen Cohen.

Bayat 319 246 מעזי אז כלה קץ Raphael Tabbush Shalosh Regalim. Ma'Uzi, meaning 'the source of our strength', was composed to be sung during the three festivals when we are commanded to rejoice. It is based on Psalms 42-43 which are said throughout the Sukkot holiday. The words of the pizmon, like Psalms 42-43, are clearly tinged with longing, melancholy, and even pain. They remind us of the times when our hopes were raised, when we thought that redemption was at hand, only to have those hopes crushed. Only at the end does it conclude with hope of returning to the temple in the future during the three festivals. Commentary on Pizmon I. Cabasso- Shav'at
