Overview

Music is an intrinsic part of Jewish expression, reaching back to the biblical "Song of the Sea," which appears in Exodus, and the Psalms composed by King David. Employing the tools of Jewish mysticism, Music and Kabbalah examines the spiritual connection between God and music.

Rabbi Glazerson employs music as a vehicle with which to teach that "Judaism and the Hebrew language, the holy tongue, are vast and deep, embracing incomprehensible knowledge of every aspect and sphere of life."
