Musical Ancestries™ is a program designed to teach school-aged children about their musical and cultural heritage. This episode is devoted to Jewish culture, instruments, music, and traditions! Listeners will meet Cantor Ruth and her four students as they share a lesson on the great diversity of Jewish music and culture through the principle of Tikkun Olam, or”Repair of the World.” Thus begins an exciting lesson as the students experience diverse Jewish music from around the globe and discover its relevance to their lives.
