Travel through Jewish history as we explore the making of a traditional Shabbat zemer (song) Dror Yikra, from its untraditional inception in medieval Spain to its current use at the Shabbat table. With the discovery of the Cairo Geniza we can now uncover the roots of what makes this song unique and its author, Dunash ibn Labrat, a groundbreaker. We will look at a few poems by Dunash and solve the mystery of the fractured love letter that perplexed scholars for 50 years.
