»Then I grasped the meaning of the greatest secret that human poetry and human thought and belief have to impart: The salvation of man is through love and in love. I understood how a man who has nothing left in this world still may know bliss, be it only for a brief moment, in the contemplation of his beloved.« (V. Frankl)

The importance of music in the life of the Jewish people is found almost at the beginning of the beginning of Genesis. Musicians are mentioned among the three fundamental professions… Music was viewed as a necessity in everyday life, as a beautifying and enriching complement of human existence. Jewish music is the music and melodies of the Jewish people which have envolved over time throughout the long course of Jewish history. In the some instances Jewish music is of a religious nature, spriritual songs and refrains are common in Jewish services throughout the world, while other times, it is of a secular nature. The rhythm and sound of Jewish music varies greatly depending on the origins of the Jewish composer and the time period in which the piece was composed.
