Israel Prize to musicologist Edwin Seroussi

Minister of Education Naftali Bennett has informed Professor Edwin Seroussi, director of the Jewish Music Research Centre at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem of his winning the Israel Prize in the study of culture, art and musicology.

Bennett said, "I am particularly happy because his expertise is in Jewish music in Andalus (Spain and North Africa) and in the poetry of Sephardi Jewry, areas that have not been sufficiently expressed. Today we are presenting the full Jewish story, both West and East, as one!"
