Song at the Sea

Talmudic discussion of the antiphonal recitation of the Song at the Sea revolved around what the Rabbis presupposed to have been its original format in the mouths of Moses and the Children of Israel. One is led to wonder whether the authors of these comments had in mind a liturgical use in their own day. If there was such a use, it was evidently a ritual originally reserved for the Sabbath afternoon service and only in post‐talmudic times made its way into the Sabbath morning and even the daily prayers. It then took a place of honor at the conclusion of the block of Psalmsknown as the pesukei dezimra (Pss. 145–50; see above), that linked the morning benedictions and readings with the Shema and its benedictions.
