from WIKI:
Temple Beth El of Borough Park, now known as Young Israel Beth El of Borough Park, is a historic synagogue at 4802 15th Avenue in Borough Park, Brooklyn, New York, New York.
Berele Chagy, cantor 1940s and early 1950s

I see listings on Columbia (1920's), Asch/Stinson, Greater Recording Company (LP), Golden Voice (LP), and on CD compilations.

You may have been a victim of autocorrect--the cantor's first name was actually "Berele!"

He also recorded commercially, and while I'm no expert on cantors, I believe that he is still very highly regarded.

Hi Ben,

I forwarded your question to Seth Winner and got this:" Recorded in 1948. Beryl Chaggy was its cantor." 

He says that there may be more than one cantor on that record, even though one was listed. He says that the D8 in the matrix number indicates the 1948 recording date. He also says it may be a radio broadcast. 

Best,
Gary

Hello everyone

I have a 16" vinyl from the United States of America Navy Department.
It says "Jewish Divine Service".
The service is "performed" by Cantor Abraham Shapiro and the Choir of Temple B'nai Abraham of Newark, NJ, Max Helfman, conducting.
Series B, No. 14A - ND8-MM-10254

Can anyone tell me about this record?

Thanks,
Ben Roth
