The Adon Olam Lecture
Cantor Benjamin Maissner
We all know the song – it’s the point in the service when the men stand up and fold their talitot and everyone gets ready for kiddush! But in this riveting hour, Cantor Beny Maissner shares everything you want to know about the ancient piyut. He’ll explore Adon Olam from antiquity through the Renaissance, classical and romantic periods, and open our eyes (and ears) to a new world of Adon Olam!
Featuring Nadia Adler, piano.
