A Temple Sinai Program: Lunch Then Learn with Rabbi Lawrence Englander - The Mizrachi Revolution in Israeli Music and Literature
Wednesdays, August 5, 12, 19, 26 from 12.00 p.m. to 1.30 p.m.
If you attend an Israeli wedding these days, chances are that you will hear a large dose of Mizrachi music (from Jews who came from Arab countries) – joyous, upbeat and full of love. Yet in the early years of Israel’s statehood, Mizrachi culture was perceived as inferior to the European Ashkenazic majority. Then, starting with the aftermath of the Six-Day War in 1967, that status began to change. In this course, we’ll trace the rise of Mizrachi culture through music and poetry, and we’ll see how Mizrachi Jews have begun to change the face of Israel itself.
