The history of Jewish music includes many different elements and characteristics. Until the Modern Period, Jewish music was not recorded. Oral tradition was the main source of passing down a Masoret, cultural traditions and customs. In this lecture we will discuss the evolution of Jewish music from Biblical times to Modern times. We will explore a variety of Jewish music cultures and sing some Jewish music favorites. This is a great opportunity to schmooze, learn, discuss and sing together.
