Cantor Vadim Yucht
Cantor Vadim Yucht was born in Ukraine and recognized at a very young age as having an exceptional singing voice that deserved to be nurtured. Cantor Yucht received a M.A. from the Moscow Academy of Music and Culture and began his professional career as choir conductor and musical director at the USSR Government Community Center. During the course of his compulsory military service in the Soviet Union, Cantor Yucht was chosen for a much coveted spot in the elite Red Army Chorus and later served as their conductor and music arranger.
In 1991, the Yucht family made Aliya to Israel where the Cantor became a member of The Great Synagogue of Jerusalem Choir and was selected as a member of the New Israeli Opera. He then became a student at the Tel Aviv Cantorial Institute, and his first cantorial post was with Congregation Emet VeAnva in Ramat-Gan. After 10 years in Israel, the Yucht family moved to the United States where Cantor Yucht received a M.A. in Jewish Education at the Jewish Theological Seminary of America. Cantor Yucht joined MJCBY after 10 years at The Orangetown Jewish Center. He also has been invited to perform at several other synagogues and cultural institutions and his performances were included on two of the USCJ Cantors’ Assembly CD’s, “The Spirit of Israel I and II.” Cantor Yucht is married to Dina and they are the proud parents of two children, Angie and Greg.
