Writing new melodies for ancient prayers and poems has been a surprisingly profound spiritual practice for me over the past few years. It has demanded that I experience traditional words in new ways, often listening for something underneath them that I have missed in the past. It has also demanded that I become more familiar with the amazing treasure trove of Jewish music from all over the world as I have sought inspiration for new sounds and rhythms. It has stretched me as a musician and as a rabbi.
But even more than writing music, singing some of these new melodies with others has been such a joy-filled experience. Coming together in song is at the heart of the Jewish spiritual “toolbox”, and I hope to continue to find ways to deepen our communal exploration of music as a path to connection – with one another, with our tradition, and with the Jewish future.
