He describes his mother as managing restaurants and bars, and at times, games in casinos. The family relocated often. His parents divorced when Sadler was five, and his father died not long after at age 36 from a rare form of nervous system cancer.
Paraliturgical songs Paraliturgical songs are those which are sung at the very many events associated with Jewish religious life. They include songs associated with life-cycle events — birth and circumcision, childhood and adolescence, betrothal and wedding, death and mourning; with Jewish festivals — family table songs, and songs associated with particular festivals such as the Pesach seder or the Purimspiel; with hillulot [festive rejoicing] associated with the tombs and communities of holy rabbis as well as Hasidic songs sung at the rebbe's tish [table].
They encompass songs of different genres which often cut across the division between synagogue and non-synagogal songs, they are sung in Hebrew as well as Jewish languages of the diaspora, and they encompass different styles of performance — men's and women's songs and songs with or without instrumental accompaniment.
These are liturgical poems in Hebrew, which are included in regular synagogue services, e.
Piyutim are sung as zemirot table hymns by the family on Shabbat and festivals as well as at family lifecycle celebrations, and are thus regarded as both a paraliturgical as well as liturgical genre.
Rabbi Israel Najara — has been mentioned above. He was particularly gifted at adapting Hebrew texts to the Turkish, Arabic, Spanish and Greek folk music of his time. In very general terms, piyutim sung by Sephardic and Eastern communities follow the makam modal system, while Ashkenazi melodies are governed by shtaygers.
Nowadays, piyutim are entering the sphere of popular music and an Israeli musical style exemplified by Shlomo Bar or Eti Ankry is slowly evolving.
I highly recommend the website " An Invitation to Piyut ", at Ballad of a soldier response you can read information about particular piyutim and about religious song in general, and, most importantly, listen to multiple melodies of a particular poem.
In the Sephardic synagogue tradition, the term zemirot also refers to the preliminary section of psalms and biblical verses recited during the Shacharit [morning] prayers.
On Shabbat, there are three sets of zemirot for the corresponding three meals: The zemirot are mostly in Hebrew, but there are also a few in Aramaic. Melodies are often borrowed from the surrounding musical environment, as is illustrated in the first lecture whereby the melody for the zimrah " Tsur mishelo achalnu " [Rock from whose food we have eaten] comes from the Ladino cantiga "La rosa enflorese" [The blossoming rose] or "Los bilbilikos" [the nightingales].
Hasidic dance tunes and Jewish melodies serving other functions have also been used. Altogether, singing zemirot is a popular activity, and new tunes are constantly being composed.
The Zemirot Data Base is an editable, interactive site at which you can upload yourself singing zemirot and other liturgical songs — have a go!! Last but not least, here is a moving story of what happened to the zimrah "Ma yafit" " Ma yofis " [How beautiful].

Coplas Coplas are poems written in Ladino about topics related to Jewish religion and community. A large number are paraliturgical in nature, connected with the Jewish festival cycle. Coplas de Purim were among the first of the genre to be written, and they are also the most numerous.
Broadly speaking, the content can be divided into three types: There are also poems related to life cycle celebrations, such circumcision, and the yearning for Zion, e.
Historical events such as the Balkan wars of and or the fires of Salonika in and are recorded in coplas, as are incidents within particular communities. Complas del felek deal with current affairs and welfare, e. Their function is basically didactic, aiming to counter assimilationist tendencies by familiarizing the population with Jewish texts, lore and values, as well as by means of moralization and reproof.
For example, national disasters such as the Salonica fires are ascribed to laxity in observing Jewish laws, especially those of the Shabbat. For example, the copla telling of the birth of the patriarch Abraham, "El nacimiento de Abraham" " Cuando el rey Nimrod " draws on midrashic legends explaining why Abraham chose to believe in one God and his struggle with Nimrod, mythical builder of the Tower of Babel and aspiring leader of the world.
Another example, "Moises en los cielos" [Moses in the heavens] "Alli en el midbar"recounts the dialogue between Moses and the angelsbased on the Talmudic tractate of Shabbat.
The composition of didactic poems in Ladino which were accessible to lay people was driven by the same motivating force as the creation of Me'am Lo'ezthe compendium of Biblical exegesis and midrash written in Ladino and initiated in by Rabbi Yaakov Culi. Stylistically, the coplas are strophic poems following a few set patterns.
They are basically a male genre, initially because written collections of poems were inaccessible to women who were generally illiterate; women who did sing coplas attributed their knowledge to having heard a male member or close friend of the family.
Besides the written collections, the coplas were also passed down orally by singing original melodies or ones borrowed from earlier Hebrew piyutim the melodies of which in turn were borrowed from Turkish songs.
