Psalms

Elohim hashivenu: A liturgical insertion for holy days in Italy and beyond 

Jewish liturgy evolved in a multidirectional process. Differences between diverse local versions and lineages of transmission crystallized into several minhagim (“customs” or “traditions”) once the printing press started to produce prayer books in rapidly increasing numbers to satisfy the expanding demand. Many unique liturgical passages, whose pedigree and paths of transmission remain to be investigated, were established in different minhagim, some of them only in one.  

Hebrew Psalmody: a Structural Investigation

The tradition of singing the Psalms according to a specific set of masoretic accents (ta'ame emet) had been considered nearly forgotten. However, on the basis of the oral renditions of Psalms performed by North African and Middle Eastern Jews in liturgical and non-liturgical contexts that have survived until the present, this monograph maintains that many aspects of the system of cantillation according to masoretic accents was kept alive in actual practice.
