Cantor Weiss was a wonderful man that I remember with love. He was my Cantor, when I was a child at "6th Street." What a kind, gentle man with a beautiful voice.

My condolences go out to his loving wife, Bertha, and his entire family.

With love,

So sorry to learn of Cantor Weiss' passing. What a wonderful man. A terrific mentor and visited with him in Florida. The Weiss' lived in the same development my parents lived. Cantor Weiss helped make my Bar Mitzvah a tremendous success. He shall always be missed.
