    There is a whole pamphlet out called the torah is not hefhker which happenes to be an amazing book, worth a read, I’d recommend it which it describes how the new music of our generation is copying rock and roll and that all the music we listen to nowadays is bad maybe it’s not as bad as the radio it goes together with the loud music at chasunas. I think he’s got a point.

    It’s not true. The music is ok, maybe a little boring. The loud music at chasunas is a separate problem. A hearing problem.

    It’s not true. Meaning there is no such booklet out there?

    (actually anyone here still from back in the good old days know this is not a topic to start, it will get [closed] in no time.)

    I don’t have the time I would need to go through everything wrong with that booklet.

    The problem raised with loud music at weddings is a result of the fact that there are generally elderly people at weddings and/or those with hearing impediments, and the loud music can be terribly detrimental to their hearing. A similar problem is the belief that it can cause damage to the hearing of everybody, not just the elderly.

    What on earth can that have to do with modern music?

    Nothing we can do!!!

    So we should all stop listening to music completely right?

    Everybody’s talkin’ ’bout the new sound

    Funny, but it’s still rock and roll to me

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but I seem to recall that pamphlet quoting a lot of scientific research and data, without actually providing the sources

    There’s a book called “Through Music and Song”, by Rabbi Elysha Sandler, which discusses both the positive and negative aspects of music. For anyone interested in the topic, it’s worth a look.

    Can anyone here inform me of a gemach (free only) in Lakewood with a copy of “Through Music and Song” ?

    Shopping, there is something you can do and it doesn’t involve stopping listening to music. Try finding some older jewish music that has taam.

    Talking of leaflets & pamphlets on this topic, Rabbi Ephraim Luft of Bnei Brak (from Australia/England) is big into this subject, & I think has put out some material about it.

    Oh wow, I’ve just glanced at a yeshivaworld news site, mentioning Rabbi Luft. I hadn’t realized how controversial his approach to this issue is. I wasn’t trying to stir things up with my last post. I was just unaware. Sorry.

    If you want good hartzige music, listen to Yosef karduner and Shlomo/Eitan Katz.

    No worries! It’s his booklet in the first post.

    rebyidd: I interpret ‘rock and roll’ to mean all popular music such as reggae, trance, Lady Gaga, etc.

    While there’s a lot of Jewish pop out there, I am not aware of anything that sounds like Elvis or death metal. And I hope I never do.

    Aha.

    Don’t know why the ‘penny didn’t drop’ earlier…

    They’re a really nice family, but that doesn’t make me agree with everything he writes.

    I still hold by everything I wrote in that thread, BTW. Saves me having to post on this one.
