This chapter explores how Jews in linked roles of religious vocalist and leader (from hazzan to congregation head to chief rabbi), as well as popular artists facilitated cultural flows by circulating in musical urban spaces of which synagogues were a part. Framing music-making within the urban environment assists in examining the precise places (synagogue, Mevlevi lodge, café, among others) and people participating in common patterns of patronage, aesthetic conventions, and apprenticeships to cultivate a changing, multiethnic Ottoman music world. Specifically, attention to Jews of differing positions and compositional output serves to tease out a heterogeneous intercommunality, as well as to make visible Jewish composers who were socially active but absent from past and present Ottoman-Turkish sources because of their Hebrew-only music.

Keywords:   synagogue, Mevlevi, patronage, hazzan, apprenticeship, multiethnicity, art world
