Music is central to Jewish life both in and out of the synagogue. Klezmer bands perform at weddings, lively songs are played at bar mitzvahs, and devotional music is sung to praise and worship God. The bright colors and happy expressions on the faces of the musicians in this painting express the lively nature of the music being played by the band.

About This Painting
Jewish music can be secular or devotional, and it is divided into three “streams” of influence. Mizrahi, Ashkenazi, and Sephardi are the three streams, and each stream is comprised of several different cultures of influence. Asian, Middle Eastern, and European cultures have all influenced the distinct, unique sounds of Jewish music. In this vibrant painting, we see a klezmer band performing a lively folk tune. Klezmer music is derived from the Ashkenazi stream of influence, and it is often heard at Jewish weddings and other social events. The painting invokes feelings of happiness and liveliness, and one can almost hear the tune being played by the subjects of the picture. The song is likely being sung in Yiddish, a combination of Hebrew and German.
