Hasidim place a great
deal of emphasis on music.
Generally speaking, Jew-
ish prayer, as well as scrip-
ture reading and study, re-
quires melody. Some have
claimed that music is the
soul of human experience.
-Often the Hasidic melod-
ies are chanted without even
having words. Often these
melodies are adapted to a
variety of texts.

Since the basic aim of
Hasidism is "D'vekut,"
which means devotion in
the form of "clinging" and
attaching one's self to the
divine, a deep sense of
mystique which cannot be
adequately expressed in
words moves the Hasid.

Since this experience rises
above the level of the ra-
tional it can only be ex-
pressed in music which
gives vent to the mystical
and the ecstatic.
