"I just received immigration/naturalization papers for my great uncle,
Benjamin Bachrach. The documents say he came to Canada to be a cantor
at a congregation in Winnipeg ("Beith Abraham"). But then the various
reports on him give his occupation as merchant. Would a job as cantor not
have been a full-time paid job during that period?"


I don't know the answer to the question, but my husband's grandfather,
Louis (Yehuda Lev) Berman, was a lay cantor at Tifereth Israel Synagogue
in San Diego, California in the 1920's. His occupation was also
merchant.
