Born in Georgia (USSR) with a wonderful voice, Yuri Tsevi was a renowned soloist in Russia’s Jewish musical theater. While touring Russian cities, his acting troupe received an invitation to tour Canada. As he arrived in Toronto the company that invited them declared bankruptcy. The Russian Embassy could not help and, to make matters worse, Yuri became deathly ill. While his life was saved he lost his voice. Abandoned by his wife, his young daughter became his incentive to survive. And so, he established what was to become a popular tour guide business in Toronto, the city he came to love, and now calls home.
