Dov was born in Sydney, Australia in 1974 and was destined to become a Chazzan from a very early age. The son of the world renowned Chazzan Shimon Farkas, Dov grew up in an atmosphere of Jewish liturgical music. Dov’s talent was first recognised at the tender age of nine, when he frequently sang alongside his father as a soloist in Sydney’s Central Synagogue. In 2007, Dov released his debut solo recording”Boi Beshalom” to wide international acclaim. Dov has performed in many concerts and as a guest Chazzan around the world, and is equally at home on stage and on the bimah. Dov served as Chazzan of the South Head Synagogue in Sydney for eight years, after which time he served as Chazzan of the Chabad House of Caulfield – 770 in Melbourne for five years. In 2008 Dov was appointed as the Chief Cantor of the Caulfield Hebrew Congregation in Melbourne, one of Australia s largest Synagogues.
