A Journey Through the Song of Songs

The Song of Songs – has always been  Marc Gafni’s favorite biblical book. In his book Mystery of Love he unpacks what might be called the Commandments of Love. There is an old Hebrew mystical teaching which that if the Torah of Law had not been revealed then the Torah of the Song of Songs with its commandments would be enough to guide us.

Shefa Gold, a song writer, chantress and teacher affiliated with the Jewish Renewal movement wrote a number of beautiful chants to the words of the Song of Songs. Shefa came to Israel at Marc’s invitation and spent a week with Dr. Marc’s Israeli students teaching the art of Chant.

Dr. Marc fell in love with the chants and decided {contractually bought the rights} to use the Chants in a CD of his Mystery of Love teachings on the Songs of Songs.

For clarity’s sake it is worth noting that this CD is however not a joint initiative; It is Marc Gafni’s CD owned exclusively by him using Shefa’s songs which he formally acquired in a limited fashion. Limited because the songs are fully Shefa’s creation and owned by her. Marc bought only the right to use them freely as he saw fit on these two CDs, which would be owned by him.

R. Marc recorded an English and Hebrew CD of these teachings in the summer of 2005. You can stream both versions below.
