MAQAM OF THE WEEK: SIGAH             מקץ

רני ושמחי בת ציון מקץ
מקאם סיגא נגונים
יביעון שפתי שירה נשמת
ראה זר שועת
הימי סתימי  ההודאות
את כלה  קדיש
אור כשלמה יה עוטה  שמחים
ידיד נפש  ממצרים
עורי כלה  נקדישך
יצא למלך מבית סורים  פזמון ספר תורה
For Shabbat Miqes (Genesis 41:4- 44:17), Maqam SIGAH is applied according to all Aleppo sources, whereas Maqam RAHAW is applied according to all Damascus sources. Maqam SIGAH is familiar to most as being the maqam used for all Torah readings. Typically, Shabbat Miqes is the Sabbath that coincides with Hanukkah, and SIGAH would be appropriate in order to apply two specific Hanukkah related melodies to the prayers. These melodies are "Yebiun Sefatia Shira" (472a) for Nishmat and "Or Kasalma" (458a) for Semehim. In addition, the holiday of Hanukkah symbolizes light, and SIGAH, the maqam used for the Torah, also symbolizes light. This year, when Shabbat Miqes does not coincide with Hanukkah, there are some that may apply Maqam RAHAW in order to apply the song "Yassa Limlokh Mibet Surim" (page 363), a pizmon about the story of Joseph, for Semehim.
