Praise​ ​for​ ​​The​ ​Torah​ ​of​ ​Music​:

It’s no wonder that Joey Weisenberg has the following that he does. He manages to honor Judaism’s musical canon while taking it roaring into the future in ways that are rousing, haunting, heartrending and exciting. His book, The Torah of Music weaves the stories, liturgy, history, and poetry that make music such a primary, powerful source of spiritual transformation. This book will make you want to sing. - Abigail Pogrebin

 

I have been waiting for this book! The Torah of Music is at once a sourcebook for Jewish music texts, a poetic lovesong and a personal memoir on the transformative potential of music to change us and change communities. Weisenberg, a master shaliach tzibbur and musican, helps us understand the universal power of music through the distinctive vocabulary of Jewish texts and traditions. A beautiful and important addition to every Jewish library. Rabbi/Cantor Angela Buchdahl, Central Synagogue
