Benzion Miller

Benzion Miller, cantor

CANTOR BENZION MILLER is one of a few orthodox cantors dedicated to perpetuating the great virtuoso cantorial styles and tradition of the 19th and early 20th centuries. Through his father he is a direct descendant of Bobover Hassidim, the followers of Rabbi Shlomo Halberstam of the town of Bobov, Galicia (near present-day Nowy Sacz, Poland, southeast of Kraków), who was the founder of the Bobover "dynasty" in the mid-19th century. Cantor Miller's father - who was born in prewar Poland in the town of O?wi?cim (Auschwitz) - his grandfather, and his greatgrandfather were all cantors at the courts of the Bobover rebbes (Hassidic rabbinical leaders). Benzion Miller was born in Germany shortly after the end of the Second World War, in a displaced persons camp near Munich. It was there that his father, Cantor Aaron Miller, who had lost his entire family in the Holocaust (his wife and children were murdered in German concentration camps), met and married Benzion's mother - a survivor from the Belzer Hassidic sect (another Galician "dynasty") - while both were awaiting patriation. They eventually went to Brooklyn to join a group of fellow Bobover Hassidim who had been living there since before the war.
