Richard Tucker (1913 - 1975)

Born Rubin Ticker, of Bessarabian Jewish parents who had emigrated to America in 1911, Tucker’s vocal prowess was noted during childhood by his father, who took him to the cantor Samuel Weisser for vocal tuition. After puberty he became a cantorial student, singing with choirs, at weddings and bar mitzvahs; and in 1936 married Sara Perelmuth, whose brother was the successful tenor Jan Peerce (qv).

His father-in-law Louis Perelmuth introduced Tucker to the cantor Joseph Mirsky, who taught him many of the intricacies of cantorial style. After serving as a part-time cantor at Temple Emanuel, Passaic he graduated to full-time positions, firstly at Temple Adath Israel in the Bronx and then at the Brooklyn Jewish Centre. These posts supplemented his main income as the owner, and only salesman, for the Reliable Silk Company.
