It is traditional to sing
Zemirot (Sabbath songs) at
the table during the Sab-
bath meal.
On the Sabbath one is
supposed to experience de-
light. Singing, of course,
produces such delight and
makes the Sabbath meal a
delightful experience. Some
however, offer a more
sophisticated reason.
The. Jewish table, espe-
cially on the Sabbath where
there is more leisure time;
was supposed to be a place
for intellectual discussion,
especially for Jewish learn-
ing. The problem then arose
that many people might not
have the intellectual back-
ground to be able to partici-
pate in such an experience.
For this reason poetry
and..prose were written and
appropriate melodies were
composed to fit these words.
The content of the words
was comprised of intellec-
tual ideas. If a person does
not have the intellectual
capacity to understand the
depth of thought involved in
the literary content he can
at least join in the melodi-
ous singing of the wor4 and
thus fulfill the requirement
of expressing some intellec,
tual content.
