How did the custom of leining the aseret hadibrot with a special tune develop?

  • What's the special tune? If you mean taam elyon, why is that a special tune? – Double AA Apr 9 '17 at 14:33

    Is your question covered by this similar question? – Rish Apr 9 '17 at 15:24

    @DoubleAA I don't know what's unclear about this, assuming (which is a big assumption) that the average reader knows that the Decalogue is read with a different tune than the standard taam tachton written in the chumashim. That said, it does seem to be a duplicate of the question linked to by Rish. – msh210 Apr 9 '17 at 15:59
