Music has a way of touching the heart like nothing else can. Certain melodies and words spark something in our souls that wakes us up and fills us with a sense of God’s presence and his greatness and beauty. Zemirot is a Hebrew word that means “songs.” During each of the Sabbath meals it is customary to sing a few songs together. Sometimes the songs are rousing and joyous; other times they are longing or mysterious. Zemirot are an extremely important tool for passing on love for the Sabbath and Jewish identity to the next generation.
