This book is the first in-depth study of the meaning and experience of chanting Torah among contemporary American Jews, describing how this ritual is shaped by such forces as digital technology, feminism and contemporary views of spirituality.
Rabbi Summit will be joined by discussants Dr. Mark Slobin, Winslow-Kaplan Professor of Music Emeritus at Weleyan University and Cantor Richard Cohn, Director, Debbie Friedman School of Sacred Music, Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion.
Center for Jewish History | 15 West 16th Street | New York, NY 10011
This program is co-sponsored by the American Jewish Historical Society.
This presentation addresses three anthems that have helped shape Israeli society: “Ha-Tikva,” “L’Internationale,” and “Yerushalayim shel Zahav.” In light of three ideological facets represented by these songs—liberation, solidarity, and territoriality—Dr. Figueroa will discuss what constitutes an anthem in Jewish and Israeli history, theorizing a mode of performance he calls the “declamatory style,” in which vocal gestures that blur the distinction between speech and song portend the political value of musical performance.
Composer, conductor, professor, and activist Daniel Asia talks about the origins of Yiddish song in Eastern European culture, its continuation on the American scene in the music of Yiddish composer Lazar Weiner, and its influence on Asia’s own award-winning music.

the Joseph Achron Society fundraiser ends tonight! Online donations are quick and easy, and will help us publish the first edition of Achron’s brilliant Paganini Caprice transcriptions!
You know as well as I do: more than half of Achron’s important legacy has never been published — despite high praise from the likes of Heifetz and Schoenberg — and thus remains inaccessible to most of today’s performers.
For the first time in almost 100 years, the Achron-Paganini Caprices will be easily available in print to performers world-wide! Let us work together. Help us with a tax-deductible donation today — and receive a free score!
