Shabbat Shirah Lecture

Location: 
Mayer & Ethel Lerner Sanctuary

“SONGS AS OLD AS WINE… NEW EVERY DAY”
will be presented by Cantor Hinda Labovitz at Shabbat Morning Services
In her song, Shiro Shel Abba, Naomi Shemer wrote of a childhood melody that was “old as wine… new every day.” What does it mean to be innovating in the context of tradition? How do we read Shirat Ha-Yam (the Song at the Sea), one of our oldest texts, in our contemporary context? And what is our responsibility to reading biblical text in its historical context, even as we read ourselves into it today?
