Israel: it's a combination of the Hebrew word [i]yisra[/i] (to prevail) with [i]ayl[/i] (the divine). The 12 tribes that arose from the harsh soil of the Middle East have persevered, for millennia, against an almost unimaginable backdrop of brutal obstacles to flourish, not only in their native land, but also throughout the world. And while their numbers are not large — fewer than the inhabitants of Mexico City — the Jews, thanks to their faith and culture, have yielded some remarkable musical gifts. We open with a majestically gorgeous arrangement of "Shalom alechem," the mystical song that welcomes the Shabbat each Friday night, performed here by Mikhail Turetsky & The Male Choir Moscow Choral Synagogue. As Golden Globe®-winning actor Topol sings in [i]Fiddler On the Roof[/i]'s defining moment, the crowd-rousing chest-thumper "Tradition," faith isn't placed solely in the divine, but also in customs that have stood the test of time. And how can we speak of Jewish faith expressed in music without mentioning the Israeli national anthem, "Hatikvah (The Hope)," based upon a poem that anticipated a sovereign Jewish state seven decades before its formation, and conducted here with noble stateliness by John Williams. From Theodore Bikel to Rabbi Mark Zimmerman, we take an ear-opening — if necessarily brief — tour of a culture as rich in music as in the history from which it springs.
