This article concerns the traditional liturgical and non-liturgical music of the various Jewish communities worldwide, the contribution of Jewish performers and composers within their surrounding non-Jewish societies, and the musical culture of ancient Israel/Palestine. For a discussion of music in the modern state of Israel, see Israel.
Three Hebrew transliteration systems are employed throughout: one for the main body of the text and the bibliography; and two sub-systems to represent the distinctive pronunciations of the Jews of Yemen and Iraq. When musical examples have been reprinted from secondary sources the original transliteration has been preserved.
