Our study is about the musical evaluation of the symbols called Taamim read in Jewish temples. In the Sabbath ritual, which is expressed as a weekly worship in Jewish temples, the Torah is generally read according to symbols called Taamim. Although Taamim does not express a specific note exactly, it guides the reader how to read the words melodically. Our research includes the Taamim symbols performed in the temples of Sephardic Jews in Istanbul. Although these symbols, which are also present in Ashkenazi Jews, are generally shown with the same signs, it is stated that they sound different melodically both in their naming and in some places. This study aims to fill this gap by notating the musical readings of Taamim symbols.
