MAQAM OF THE WEEK: Shabbat Vayiqra: ויקרא

On Shabbat Vayiqra (Leviticus 1:1- 5:26), Maqam RAST is applied to the prayers, according to SUHV (Red Pizmonim Book), and at least 18 other sources. This maqam, defined as 'head' in Arabic, and considered the "father of the maqamat," is always the first maqam used in a collection of Arabic songs. This relates here, as Vayiqra is the first perasha, or head, of Leviticus. This maqam also relates to this Torah portion, because sacrificing the 'head' (Arabic: RAS) of an animal is considered an atonement for that individual's head. Maqam RAST is also used each Shabbat at Minha services. Sephardic Pizmonim Project, www.pizmonim.com.
