Description: 

This CD is dedicated to piyutim (sung sacred poetry) of the Jews of the Tafilalt (Berb. Tāfīlālt) region, in particular to the lore of the venerated tzaddiq (Heb. virtuous/ holy man) Rabbi Yaacov Abuhatzira and the members of the rabbinical dynasty he founded. The songs have been codified in a compendium titled Yagel Yaacov. To the poems of this collection, we added piyutim by other authors, which are related to the Moroccan Jewish tradition. The concept and performance of this production was developed by the Piyut Ensemble of the Ben-Zvi Institute, a Hebrew University institution dedicated to the research of the Sephardic and Oriental Jewry, under the direction of Yair Harel and Avraham Cohen.
