Excerpt from Hebrew Hymnal for School and Home
The purpose of the Hebrew Hymnal is to present traditional melodies of the synagogue and the Jewish home adapted to the needs of young Israel. Most of the music has been specially arranged for the Hymnal, and some of the selections are here published for the first time. In every case, the editors have endeavored to give a simple version of the melody with correct harmonization. The transliteration of the Hebrew words aecom panying the music is a slight modification of the system followed in the Jewish Encyclopedia. The Hebrew text (based on S. Baer's Abodath Israel) as well as the English translation, which follows the authorized Singer Prayer Book, are printed on the page Opposite the music, except where space permitted the printing of the words on the same page with the music. This arrangement makes it possible to use the book as a Hebrew reader in the schools. Inasmuch, however, as the mison d' fire of the book is the music. It was, of course, necessary to page it trom left to right.
