Why Sing the Song of the Sea?

Az Yashir 5_2_11

Click on the link above for our most recent shiur!  In this half-hour class, we discuss the structure and some of the content of “az yashir” – the song of the sea.

What is this song doing in our daily prayers?
Why does it switch between second and third person in referring to God?
Who are the mysterious “shalishim”?
Why the grammar shift from “mi Chamocha” to “mi Kamocha”?

All this and much more… (well, all this and slightly more.)

Enjoy!
Hillel
