Alternately melodious and side-splitting, THE JEWISH SONGBOOK is the sound of Jewish artists honoring their culture. Whether it's Neil Sedaka delivering a heartfelt, string-laden "My Yiddishe Momme" or SNL star Rob Schneider singing jazzy praises to his beloved "Bagel & Lox," Jewish life gets a salute in song, sometimes earnest and sometimes with tongue lodged firmly in cheek.
