Publisher: Hebrew World

For years, Uri, an Israeli Hebrew teacher, was talking to everyone who's willing to listen about his idea of music in the Bible. Uri knew of an old Hebrew tradition about the creation of the world. According to the story, God used the Bible as a blueprint for his work of creating the universe. The 22 Hebrew letters in pre-determined combinations were used to accomplish this task. Those letters therefore represent the physical forces used in the creation process.

Today, new evidence confirms the idea that the original text of the Hebrew Bible is multi-layered and goes much deeper than the surface story. Mysterious codes embedded in the text contain information that could have not been written or obtained by human beings. "Why," Uri has asked himself, "would one of the layers of this complex text not be music?" And if there is music in the text, how would one find it? The answer Uri came up with was probably the simplest one: assign a musical note to each Hebrew letter and let the Bible "play itself..."

Early in 1997 Uri and some of his students collaborated on the production of this project and what they found--after long and exciting months of experimentation--was simply stunning!

YES, there is Divine music encoded in the Hebrew text of the Bible! It is beautiful and meditative. Part of the music sounds like ocean waves, other parts lift the spirit and fill the listener with joy.

The first experiments concentrated on certain chapters from Psalms. Tradition tells us that reading Psalms aloud in Hebrew brings healing to the sick and helps individuals overcome adversity. How does this happen? Could it be that sound--the combination of Hebrew syllables--can produce some unknown effect? An old Jewish legend tells us that "he who possesses the knowledge of how to form the right combination of Hebrew sounds can create and destroy worlds...." If that is so, then music is just another "delivery method" of those powerful forces and actually has the same effect on people (or matter) as the Hebrew text has when it is read aloud. Psalms that are known for their healing properties were chosen. The assumption was that healing will occur in any form of delivery of this unknown power. In an amazing way, it seems to work just as predicted. People report an immediate calming effect, a meditative healing quality that sounds unlike anything you have heard before. The effect is amplified when you close your eyes and the music seems to work best while resting, while meditating or while praying.
