We sing every song based on text from this book (an enormous number with surprising variety):  
        music from diverse communities, languages, and styles, such as: 
          Israeli composers,  Sacred Harp, 
Renaissance,  classical composers,  rounds,  and more).

Feel free to come and go, any time throughout the afternoon.  
        We conclude with a rousing finale of Hayoshevet Baganim
(the closing verses), around 6:00

Along the way we do a few choral
Those who can sing these, sit together with the choral folders, so we’re ready to sing
        those pieces when they come along.  Mostly, though, the songs we sing are unison

 Value of the Program:
      • Enjoy the songs, learn new ones and
interpretations, and expand your horizons.  
      • It brings together diverse participants
,   attracted for multiple reasons
                  (the music, cultural variety, theology, singing these at Pesach)
      • Meet others:  Many people have met at these (incl marriages and relationships).  
      • Hundreds of songs
(already by the 1970's; explosion of music generated since by composers,
            and contemporary movements such as Zamir Choral Foundation & Shalshelet Foundation)
