Introduction to Torah 2018

Have you ever thought of learning to chant from the Torah?  Perhaps you have a family event, or the anniversary of your Bar/Bat Mitzvah approaching?  Or, you know how to read from the siddur and follow the prayers on Shabbat, but want to deepen your Jewish practice?   If so, this course may be for you!

This beginner course unlocks many of the mysteries surrounding chanting or “leyning” Torah.  It presents both the theoretical foundation plus practical hands-on sessions designed to teach the musical notes (“trop”) essential to singing from our holy book.  The course is designed for beginners – or those who’d like a refresher – and who have a basic level of fluency in reading Hebrew and musicality.
