When it comes to the music used in our worship services, everyone has a favorite melody. Some feel more spiritually connected with they hear the sound of the guitar and piano, while others prefer the organ and choir. Whatever your preference may be, every musical composition has a composer, and it is interesting to learn the vision and inspiration involved in setting prayers to music.
Our Sabbath services this Friday night will provide us with a window into this unique spiritual craft. Join us as we welcome internationally acclaimed composer and scholar Cantor Meir Finkelstein to the pulpit.
Cantor Finkelstein, who is the Cantor at Congregation Beth Yeshurun, has composed some of the most widely used melodies in Judaism today. Through a sermon in song, he will demonstrate how he has approached the art of translating the words of prayer into strains of sacred music. Don’t miss out on this truly special Sabbath for the soul.
