Hal was a member of the 1952 ordination class from the HUC-JIR, DFSSM. He was a founding member of the then ACCC (American Conference of Certified Cantors) which eventually became the ACC.

ACC E-note #145: ACC Listserv Announcement

We hope this finds you well, busy for sure, preparing for Pesach.

As you may be aware, Shamash, the moderator of our Listserv, informed us last June that they would be ceasing all Listserv activity in the near future, without a clear end date. Recently, they gave us a definitive end date of June 1, 2014. In anticipation of this, we will be closing our ACC Listserv on May 15, 2014.
