Cantor vs Cantor

Cantor Israel Rand is suspected of sending a woman to entrap the cantor of Jerusalem's Great Synagogue, Naftali Hershtik, in an attempt to have him removed from his job.

Wow. The morals of a pimp and the manners of a dancing master.

I guess Naftali Hershtik can still go into opera - unless he brays like an ass instead of singing like a canary.
