From Shalom Aleichem to Birkat Hamazon and Everything In Between: Enhancing your Home Practice Through Song

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Our Shabbat and holiday home rituals serve as opportunities to join in celebration with family and friends, and can be greatly enhanced through communal singing and music making. In this session, we will learn zmirot (shabbat table songs), niggunim (worldess melodies), and more.  We'll also unpack the poetry of these songs and blessings, thinking creatively about the intersection of text and melody. All ages are welcome.
