Breathe, Stretch and Sing with Cantor Natasha

Let yourself exhale the stress of the day, and inhale the healing power of song. Cantor Hirschhorn will guide the participants through a series of gentle body and voice warm up exercises to release tension, and improve and strengthen our breathing (always a good idea, but especially now!) We will then sing some familiar and new melodies to uplift our spirits and connect us to our tradition and our community. Due to the constraints of Zoom, during the group singing…

It can be hard to appreciate our services - to find the prayers spiritually elevating or comforting - when you're unsure where we are in the Siddur, what comes next, when to sit or stand, what to say or sing, or just skip.

Talmud Study with Rabbi Kalmanofsky

This year in Wednesday night Talmud we will study the tenth chapter of Tractate Yevamot. In this chapter, the Talmud wrestles with "the Return of Martin Guerre." What happens when a woman remarries after a spouse's supposed death, only to discover that the reports of his demise were greatly exaggerated? The textual, ethical and literary challenges elicited profound responses from centuries of interpreters, including Shai Agnon, the modernist writer who wove a novella from this material.

Learn to Chant Torah with Cantor Hirschhorn

Rabbi Yohanan (d. 279 C.E.) had strong feelings about using the proper musical chant in reading the Torah, asserting: "Whosoever reads without melody and studies without song, to him may be applied the verse: 'Moreover I gave them laws that were not good, and rules by which they could not live." (Talmud Bavli Megillah 32A).  In this class we will begin unlocking the musical system of symbols that guides our Shabbat Torah reading, as we journey through the last four…
