FEATURES
Downtown Express
The Jewish Week

Jakie Rabinowitz is blessed with a voice to make him the greatest of a long line of cantors.
And as Jack Robin, a heart in love with the stage.
An artist and young man torn between two worlds--the next toast of Broadway; the next voice to God--knowing his dilemma is just what makes him great.
