A Pandemic Playlist: Jewish and Secular Songs for This Moment

April 1, 2020Rabbi Esther L. Lederman

The writer and philosopher Aldous Huxley once wrote, “After silence that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.” For many of us, words seem inadequate to describe how we are feeling at this very moment. It is music that can carry us, support us, and hold out the possibility of hope and a better future.

Take a listen to this playlist of music, curated for this moment, as it lifts you, holds you, and may just make you laugh. 

For a closer look at one of the tunes on this list, read “The Jewish Song That Comforts Me in Uncertain Times” by Rabbi Alex Kress.
