At the beginning of this forum we would like to express our deep thanks to Mr. Benno Weis ZL, who was kind enough to give us the recordings he made of the old Frankfurter Nusach.

Below are a few words of information about Mr. Weis, written for us by his daughter:


Benno Weis was born in Frankfurt in 1910, where he learned the nusach just by listening to the chazzon Benno Peisachowitz.
Mr. Weis was a baal korah and baal tefila in the Breuer shul in Washington Heights for over 50 years. And had the foresight to record these niggunim for the next generation. He taught approx 275 boys in the fine art of kerias hatorah, and many people consulted him on Frankfurter minhogim.

His Daughter asked to mention, that whoever is interested in getting the tapes of the niggunim can email her at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it , or phone 718-376-0762

It seems they changed the site a bit. I tried to search and I got many recordings of his.
