Description
 
Jeffrey A. Summit (au). Across the U.S., Jews come together every week to sing & pray in a variety of worship communities. Through this music, worshippers define & redefine their relationship to the Jewish tradition & contemporary American culture. Through oral histories & an analysis of songs, this volume explores the relationships between music & identity in diverse Jewish congregations of the greater Boston area. Part of Oxford’s “American Musicspheres” series, this book & its companion CD reveal a strong, fluid musical tradition that has adapted to the diversity of Jewish worship in the U.S. Author Jeffrey A. Summit is the Rabbi & Dir. of the Hillel Foundation at Tufts Univ., where he also teaches ethnomusicology & Judaic studies.
