Cantor Picker, grandson of an orthodox cantor from White Russia, under the tutelage of his maternal uncle, left Judaism at the age of fifteen, becoming a Jehovah's Witness.


  Fifteen years later, having become disenchanted with teachings of the Watchtower Society, he returned to his ancestral heritage, becoming a Jewish educator and subsequently the cantor of Temple Israel.  He is the author of The Descendants of Velvel Pochapovsky, Students Discover Genesis, He Kindled a Light, and "Make us a God!"
