A very big mistake that is made in many congregations is that the musicians and singers are called Levites. You will ask, “Why is it a mistake if the Levites were the ones who worked in the temple singing praises and were people dedicated to service?” We will explain it to you in the best and shortest way possible.
If we analyze the word “Levite” well, from there we will realize the mistake. A Levite is a descendant of the tribe of Levi. The tribes of Israel are named according to the children of Israel: Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, etc. The descendants of Judah are called Jews. The descendants of Levi are called Levites. Levi is the third son of Jacob (Israel).
