Editorial Reviews

Review

The diversity of subjects addressed in the book's rich bibliography of mostly English-language sources on music in Jewish culture further emphasizes the difficulty of coming to a useful definition of 'Jewish music.' (Joshua Walden Musica Judaica Online Reviews, February 2010)

Perspectives on Jewish Music gives voice to a diverse choir of intellectual, passionate, original and committed approaches in exploring what is Jewish and what exactly is musical about Jewish Music. Friedmann demonstrates that the Jewish mouth sings colorful tones on many coasts, in various guises and genres—always surprising and thoughtful while all the while broadening an already supple tradition. (Rabbi Neil F. Blumofe, Congregation Agudas Achim)

About the Author

Jonathan L. Friedmann is cantor of Bet Knesset Bamidbar and Congregation P'nai Tikvah, both in Las Vegas, Nevada. He is professor of Jewish music history at the Academy for Jewish Religion, California, and the author, editor or compiler of nine other books on music and religion.
