Jewish Music in Jewish Canada with University of Ottawa Professor Hernan Tesler-Mabe.
In 1952, the highly-influential Canadian Jewish writer Israel Rabinovitch (1894-1964) published "Of Jewish Music , Ancient and Modern". What were the melodies that Rabinovitch called 'Jewish Music and how did this music unite Jews across generations. Professor Hernan Tesler-Mabe will lead a discussion on the subject of Jewish music and how its definition across the 20th Century shaped the culture of the Canadian Jewish Community.
