Jewish music is as ancient and diverse as the Jewish people. From Biblical days, music has accompanied our people on all our journeys, expressing the Jewish soul, giving voice to our joys and to our sorrows. In this historical survey, we will look at Jewish music in the Bible, during the Rabbinic period, the Renaissance, and into modern times. We will listen to samples of Jewish music from the golden age of cantorial music, Torah chanting from Syria and Yemen, wonderful choral music by the 16th century composer Salomone Rossi, and a rendition of the earliest piece of notated Jewish music.
Instructor: Rabbi Boaz Heilman
