JEWISH MUSIC RESOURCES
ON THE INTERNET
Updated: 7 February 2012
Compiled by Roger Shlomo Harris © 2000-2012
The following list contains mainly Jewish-interest music links.
There are also a number of links which, although not of specifically Jewish interest, lead to information of a technical nature within the context of music. These include a page of links to search engines and searching tips and techniques.
You can search this page easily by typing 'Ctrl-F' on the keyboard to invoke the Windows search facility. It will find, display and highlight your search keyword wherever it occurs in this page.
My thanks for additional information go to Roxy Boleyn, Prof. Dr. M. Edelman, Prof. Lewis Glinert, Mason Weisz, Tzvi Pincas, Margit Hagan and Irwin Oppenheim.

- Florida Atlantic University Jewish Sound Archive
"The Judaica Sound Archives at Florida Atlantic University Libraries is dedicated to bringing the recorded music from the Golden Age of Jewish Music to a new home where its past will be respected and its future assured. In addition to its primary focus of rescuing and preserving 78 rpm records from the first half of the 20th century, the project has expanded its scope to include LPs, tapes, 45s and sheet music."
- Music Jewbox
A very large site with a wide range of music. Many Eastern European albums. Finding something was easy when using the XenoMusic search engine but the retrieval time is around 50 seconds. Keywords which retrieved Jewish-interest music were hebrew, jewish, klezmer, niggun, rabbi, synagogue and yiddish. Some tracks are free but most are charged via Visa, MC and Amex at the rate of US$0.00394 per second (5 mins = US$1.18). Free previews: 20-30 seconds.

As its name implies, the music of this new band is something of a revelation. The brainchild of two Israeli Yemenite brothers, Yahav and Yaniv Tsaidi, Heedoosh performs deeply personal, spiritual Jewish rock music that pulls no punches. New York, NY, U.S.A.
.. comprises: five members; voice, oud, violin, flutes, percussion, bass, piano-accordion and guitar.

- From the WCN home-page: Women cantors have been recognized and accepted into all liberal cantorial schools and organizations. Yet the need for women cantors to come together has not diminished. Networking among women encourages and inspires us as we share knowledge and experiences in balancing our relationships with congregations, families and friends.
The membership benefits of conferences and phone networking has broadened with the regular publication of a newsletter beginning in 1983, the writing of a constitution and by-laws in 1993, the commissioning of new Jewish music in 1997, and the creation of an on-line list-serve network in 1998.

Research encompasses two main areas: ethnomusicology, which deals with Jewish oral traditions, and historically-oriented research based on written documentation. Collecting and studying all documents pertaining to the musical traditions and the musical life of Jewish communities, past and present are primary tasks of the Centre, as well as, preserving these materials, cataloguing and making them accessible to the scholars and individuals interested in Jewish music.

|Books about Leining
cantillation, chironomy, neginot, ping-pong
In February 2003, Tom Buchler, writing to the Leining list, referred to Edith Gerson-Kiwi's book "Chironomy."
In January 2003, Jarred Abelson wrote to the Leining list: "The Art of Cantillation" by Joshua Jacobson is published by the Jewish Publication Society. It gives a brief history of chironomy, and the hand signals that are/were used.
In January 2003, Judith Pinnolis wrote in Hasafran: I have a review of "Chanting the Hebrew Bible" by Jacobson on my website. http://www.jmwc.org/jmwc_bookandscore_reviews.html
In January 2003, Amy wrote to firstname.lastname@example.org: I learned how to chant by reading "Biblical Chant" by A. W. Binder (Philosophical Library: 1959). I believe you can order it from HUC-JIR.
In December 2002, Tom Buchler wrote to the leining group: "Chanting the Hebrew Bible" by Joshua Jacobson, (c) 2002, The Jewish Publication Society. This 965 page book covers ritual, terminology, a 270 pages of taxonomy of tropes showing how verses are diagrammed into phrases; 75 pages on pronounciation, a 20 page discussion of Masorah, 120 pages describing the cantillation of Torah including melodies and examples, 60 pages regarding parsing the Torah text, 60 pages regarding Haftarah cantillation, and another 200 pages covering High Holidays, special melodies, brachot, and Megillot.

- The term MP3 is derived from Motion Picture Experts Group (MPEG).
MPEG refers to a group of digital video compression standards whereby
file compression is achieved by
recording only the changes in succeeding frames.
Motion Picture - [level] 3 (MP3) is a standard whereby files are compressed by removing those parts of
the audio data which are inaudible to the human ear.

This program is a web-spider. You tell it what music you are looking for and
it then searches its index of Napster users to find the music. Napster does
not itself hold music files for distribution. The users, using the Napster browser,
decide whether or not make files available for supply to other Napster users.
The original source of the music may be a copyrighted CD.

Editor's note: According to legend, Bubba Fraiga, a celebrated
nineteenth-century Galician kneidel-macher, used to hum a nigun
when kneading the dough. Its duration and cadence ensured that
her kneidlach had the optimum succulence and firmness. You may
perhaps find further details about this song and also the little-known
'matza nigun,' a descant or round for nine voices lasting no more and
no less than precisely eighteen minutes, on discussion group: rec.food.cuisine.jewish

- Ping-pong leining
- Not the game known as table-tennis, but derived from the side-to-side head movements of the spectators. Ping-pong in the Jewish world refers to the chanting of the Sefer Torah when the reader uses a Chumash with cantillation marks as a guide to trop whilst reading from the unmarked scroll. The reader would point normally with the shamash in the right hand whilst glancing quickly at the Chumash lying on the reading desk at the left side of the scroll.
See also Leining, above.
Literary minded readers of this page may have read "The Mighty Waltzer" by Howard Jacobson. It is about the author's youth and tells about his development into an expert table-tennis player. Whether he also became an expert leiner was not stated.

Telnet is a pre-Windows non-mouse system and

It is easy to use and if you are clever enough to use Internet Explorer or Netscape then you should have no difficulty with Telnet. In its time it gave easy, swift access to enormous on-line resources and may still do so.

- This has nothing at all to do with dinosaurs. The name is derived from the Greek stegein grajein or "covered writing." It is the science of hiding data within other data. Digitised music and pictures are ideal media for this purpose. Uses of steganography include hiding your name, serial numbers and copyright information in various places in your digitised music in the hope that it may prove valuable in court against counterfeiters. The hidden data is almost impossible to detect. The process is also known as watermarking and fingerprinting. The brand-name 'Steganos' is in use  for a computer security product.
