Let’s say you wake up in an Ashkenazi synagogue (how you came to be there is a story for a different lecture). How would you know what day it is? What time it is? Open your ears! The liturgy is chanted using different musical modes at different times of day, and on different types of day. We’ll sing through some examples, get into arguments about if there’s a “right” way to do it, and leave more confused than we were before.

Sarah Myerson is an ordained cantor serving Kane Street Synagogue (Brooklyn, NY), having previously served congregations in New York, Massachusetts, and Israel. She is a proud member of the Cantors Assembly and ASCAP; a graduate of the Jewish Theological Seminary (NY) and the Sydney Conservatorium of Music (Australia). She writes and performs new compositions, for example with Jewish spiritual music duo Shekedina, and freelances as a musician, speaker, educator, and Yiddish dance leader.
