You know, it must not be hard at all, since I was able to find and post very similar scales in another thread. Let's not forget the Byzantine scale, and the double harmonic minor! Or are they the same?

Anyway, the Jewish scale is also the Phrygian Dominant scale. Sure, that's easy to google, but anecdotally, every time my father heard The Rolling Stones, "Paint it Black", he would bellow, "turn that shit off, it sounds like a Jewish Chant".

More research. It turns out there are both double harmonic major and minor scales. YAY.

Not wishing to be known as a slacker, I linked both.
