On this episode Robert answers the question as to how Orthodox Jewish music dispersed after the fall of the temple.  Three distinct methods of cultural worship have evolved throughout the centuries, Ashkenazi, Sephardi, and Mizrahi.  These three coexist separately and interchangeably depending on  the style of worship practiced in various countries all over the world.  After this we conclude with some insights from the Talmud as to Rabbinic decree of worship using instruments, vocals, and during feast days.
