Brod, Dovidl


BROD, DOVIDL (Strelisker, David ; 1783–1848), Hungarian *ḥazzan. Born in Brody, Brod officiated in synagogues as a child prodigy but received no musical training. Although destined originally for the rabbinate, he entered business. His business failed and he became a professional ḥazzan in Althofen, Austria, in 1822. In 1830 he moved to Budapest where he served as ḥazzan until his death. Unable to read a musical score, he improvised his own melodies and though he left no written record of his compositions, most of the ḥazzanim of Hungary and Galicia and their pupils owed their style and their melodies to his inspiration.

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
