Rabbi Haim Louk

The Sephardic Congregation of Fort Lee welcomes Rabbi Haim Louk, a rabbi and cantor from Israel, to its congregation.

Rabbi Louk was born in Casablanca, Morocco, and made aliyah to Israel in 1964. He combines his teaching in rabbinical texts and his work as an educator with his musical talent and love for Sephardic poetry and liturgy. He has produced scores of audio recordings of authentic Moroccan Jewish liturgy and is internationally recognized as a virtuoso of classical Andalusian music. He has performed recitals in Morocco, Israel, Spain, France, Belgium, Canada, Poland, and the United States.
