What defines inherently Jewish music? How do these melodies impact our spiritual lives? What is the “authentic” tune for my favorite prayer? Explore with our cantor the origins of the singing and chanting in which we participate at Temple Shaari Emeth, from melodies so old they could have been given on Mount Sinai along with the Torah, to recent compositions. Learn a musicological vocabulary to discuss the melodic choices we make. Together we will examine the expression of our liturgy and sacred texts through music, and what the melody choice might say about our own experience of Jewish practice.
