He also attended various continuing courses.After he finished his studies he served as cantor in Kolomyia for four years.
As a Zionist, he immigrated to Eretz Israel in 1931, and settled in Rishon Lezion. Here he was immediately accepted as a cantor at the Great Synagogue. In 1935, when the Baron Rothschild visited Rishon Lezion, Efraim Fishel Wechsler welcomed him on the synagogue's stairs with the blessing "Mi Sheberach".
