The right Chazan


On the importance of a proper Chazan:

"It is written (Jeremiah 12), 'She has put upon me with her voice; therefore I have hated her.' To whom does this refer?

"Mar Zutra bar Tuviah said, citing Rav - and some said it was Rabbi Chama citing Rabbi Elazar - this is an unworthy Chazan who goes to lead."

(Talmud, Taanit 16b)

Have a great day,
