Ohef Sholom Temple’s Adult Education committee presents “The History of Jewish Music” with Cantor Wally.

A look at the Bible shows that the most ancient descriptions of song originate with the Jews. From the ram caught in the thicket near Abraham (the music of the shofar), to Moses and Miriam leading the Israelites in song across the Red Sea, to commandments to praise God with music in the Psalms, the Jews have been singing since (almost) Day One.

Take a listen and participate in this exploration of Jewish music. Free and open to the public. For more information, call 625-4295.
