Special Hanukkah Edition of the Israeli and Jewish Music FJMC Affinity Group - Sunday December 3

Singing has always been an integral part of Jewish prayer; singing on Shabbat, singing in choirs, singing in small groups. Whether its Chassidic niggunim or the melodies of Shlomo Carlebach, Debbie Friedman or Safam, prayer and song have a special connection. According to the ancient Hebrew numerological system of Gematria (גימטריה), the practice of assigning a numerical value to a name, word or phrase by reading it as a number or an alphanumerical cipher, the numerical value of the words for prayer or tefillah (תְּפִלָּה) and song or shirah (שירה) are identical. In case you curious, it’s 515.
