    JEWS AND SUFIS: A Sacred Bridge

    Since at least the 16th century, the Turkish maftirim repertoire--Hebrew devotional poetry set to Turkish makam music for use in the synagogue--demonstrates the deep relationships Ottoman Jews established with members of Muslim mystical brotherhoods. A panel of three scholars will speak on cultural, historical, religious and musical aspects of the topic, followed by dialogue with the audience. The program will conclude with a lively 40-minute recital featuring an ensemble of Jewish, Muslim and Christian vocalists and instrumentalists demonstrating examples of relevant musical repertoire.
