Garment and Core

Garment and Core
Jews and their Musical Experiences
Edited by: Edwin Seroussi, Eitan Avitsur, Marina Ritzarev
This volume includes studies that tackle ways in which Jews experience and conceive music both as individuals and as communities living in diaspora conditions. Negotiating the constitution of a Jewish self through music, within a wide variety of social and cultural non-Jewish milieus past and present, transpires as a thread interlacing these studies. The intriguing and rather unusual Hebrew title of the book, roughly translated as “Garment and Core”, has kabbalistic overtones and addresses the dialectic tension between form and content, between objective perception of the outside world and inner, or subjective, perception.
