Join host Alan Elsner as we explore the rich connections between Jews and Classical music. We will explore issues like

  •  Is there such a thing as Jewish music?
  •  How should we regard composers like Mendelssohn or Mahler who were converts or the children of converts?
  • Should we agitate to ban Wagner? Is this our equivalent of pulling down Confederate statues?
  • How do we feel about specifically Christian music by great composers — Bach’s B. Minor Mass, Verdi’s Requiem, Handel’s Messiah?
  • What do we think about the music we sing in our services?
