                        The Song of Songs was popular from the outset  (long before Rabbi Akiba).  That's why it became   
 
                    part of the Bible, and why it has inspired perhaps more songs-per-verse than any other book.  
                Through some of its diverse perspectives, we will explore why this is so;  and learn/sing a few songs.
