Throughout history, music has been a fixture of Jewish religious life. Musical references appear in biblical accounts of the Red Sea crossing and King Solomon's coronation, and music continues to play a central role in virtually every Jewish occasion. Through 100 brief chapters, this volume considers theoretical approaches to the study of Jewish sacred music. Topics include the diversity of Jewish music, the interaction of music and identity, the emotional and spiritual impact of worship music, the text-tone relationship, the musical component of Jewish holidays, and the varied ways prayer-songs are performed. These distillations of complex topics invite a fuller appreciation of synagogue song and an understanding of the ubiquitous presence of music in Jewish worship.

About the Author:

Jonathan L. Friedmann is cantor of Bet Knesset Bamidbar and Congregation P'nai Tikvah, both in Las Vegas, Nevada. He is a professor of Jewish music history at the Academy for Jewish Religion, California, and is the author, editor or compiler of nine other books on music and religion.

Review:

"DrJonathan Friedmann's curiosity and prolificacy in documenting matters of Jewish musical interest are steadily distinguishing him as an A.Z. Idelsohn in and for our own time. This informed, authoritative voice is sure to be highly valued in the Jewish musical community." - Michael Isaacson, Ph.D., composer

"Who cannot enjoy an enthusiastic discourse infused with love of music? ... Friedmann has not 'hung up his harp' but employs music to recover the wellsprings of Judaism and construct a theory of its importance to the synagogue." -  David Levy, Jewish Book Council

"When you combine the thinking of a 21st-century religious sociologist and hebraic scholar with that of a musician and cantor who is also an amazingly articulate writer, you come up with this new and engaging text on synagogue music." - Cantor Sheldon Levin, Journal of Synagogue Music
