1. This book explores an under-researched era of American Jewish history through the lens of the music used in religious contexts from the 1840s to the early 1900s. Author Judah M. Cohen argues for a uniquely American experience in Jewish music and for the previously overlooked role of central European traditions in American Jewish music.

2. The project has a companion interactive website that is being created in partnership with IU Libraries. The website will host primary source materials including nineteenth century American synagogue music works and new original recordings of these scores. An interactive map will highlight the movement of Jewish musical figures from one American congregation/city to another between 1840 and 1908.

3. Cohen is an established scholar of Jewish music based at Indiana University and a returning author to Indiana University Press.
