Az Yashir: The Song of the Sea
Az Yashir Moshe… and then Moshe sang…. When the Song of the Sea is sung in the synagogue the ba’al koreh, the reader, usually uses a different melody than the standard Torah notes. Join Rabbi Dr. Stuart Fischman and explore The Shira’s textual meaning and what it means to the Jewish People as a jubilant response to being saved once again by God, one last time, from the hands of Pharaoh and the Mitzrim.
Rabbi Dr. Stuart Fischman graduated from Yeshiva University in 1980 and the dental school of Columbia University in 1985. In 1989 he began studying and teaching at Yeshivat Hamivtar and now studies and teaches at Yeshivat Machanaim in Efrat. He has rabbinic ordination from Rav Zalman Nechemia Goldberg.
