Happy 7th night of #Hanukkah!

From the JMM Collections: Hammered silver hanukiah with a built-in music box that plays “Ma-oz Tzur.”

This hanukkiah was most likely a wedding gift given to the donor’s parents in the late 1920s. The family’s non-Jewish governess held on to it when they fled Germany in 1939, eventually sending it back to the family along with other religious objects. JMM 1995.22.2.

"Magnified, sanctified ...." (in Aramaic: Yitgadal v’yitkadash) are part of the lyrics of You Want it Darker, the album released by Leonard Cohen in 2016. Cohen knew his death was near and included his own Kadish in the album's title song and invited a cantor and a synagogue choir to sing in it. Enjoy this and many more stories in "Rhythm and Jews", the five lectures course that explore two centuries of Jews' contributions to popular music, that will start next week, on Thursday November 5th. It includes jazz, rock, pop, Broadway musicals, etc.. It's part of the wide selection of online courses and lectures offered by Melton & More. For more information: https://cajeadultlearning.givecloud.co/product/Fall20RhythmAndJews/rhythm-and-jews-jews-in-american-popular-music
Starting on November 5th I will be giving a five lectures course (Zoom), about the contribution of Jews to popular music, which is part of the many offered by the prestigious CAJE/Melton and More institution. In Rhythm and Jews we'll address the history of blues, jazz, rock, Broadway musicals, record labels, racism, changes in trends, protest music and many more topics. The link below has more information.
