Song of the Month:

December 2020

This Song of the Month for Hanukkah, in video lecture format, reveals the fascinating story of the well-known Maoz Tsur. This lecture, originally presented by Prof. Edwin Seroussi on December 13, 2020 as part of a American Friends of the Hebrew University program, examines (with audio examples) dozens of versions of the holiday classic drawn from different communities and eras. Not only a fascinating lecture, here Prof. Seroussi offers a master class on contemporary Jewish music scholarship and methodology.
