Jewish Rock: Music for a New Generation

By Daniel Freelander, Jeff Klepper

Eugene Borowitz, January 20, 1978

The authors describe the Jewish rock music scene, active in myriad concerts in both America and Israel, and also active in American synagogues. Incorporating thoroughly American musical styles, arrangements and instrumentation, these musical experiences tend also to use traditional liturgical and rabbinic texts for lyrics, the authors report, and are introducing genuine Jewish spirituality and religious expression to American Jewish youth.
