Rabbi Andrew Hahn, Ph.D., combines a variety of tools to introduce Jewish Wisdom to an increasingly global, religious village. Kirtan Rabbi’s music is characterized by great energy, passion and melodic flow.
It seemed only natural to Kirtan Rabbi and others who had danced in synagogues and pounded more than a few Shabbat tables that Hebrew would work wonderfully in a kirtan framework. So, Hebrew Kirtan was born.

Kirtan is fully participatory, call-and-response devotional chant. A live kirtan is at once ecstatic, contemplative and — most of all — playfully improvised. Enjoy singing along
with this music!
Kirtan Rabbi: Live! was recorded after sundown on June 14, 2008 at Congregation Bnai Jeshurun in New York City. Unless otherwise noted, all melodies are by Rabbi Andrew Hahn. The words are drawn from the Hebrew Bible and the
siddur (the traditional Jewish prayerbook), as well as from the language of kabbalah (Jewish mysticism).
