Airdate: 2013-04-07 | Guests: Rabbi Mark Sameth
Many of the melodies sung in synagogues today date back 500, even as far back as 1,000 years; while the words to other very well known synagogue songs are traceable to ancient Israels pre-monarchic period, more than 3,000 years ago. In this program, Rabbi Mark Sameth of Pleasantville Community Synagogue (Joyful Judaism!) talks about and performs songs spanning these three millennia, songs much beloved by Jews, still sung today in the Jewish service. Rabbi Mark is joined in discussion by the program's host, former Mayor Bernard Gordon.
