The Sounds of Celebration
Taught by Hazzan Stein
First Thursday of every month
10:30am – 11:30am
Jewish holidays and ceremonies are a time to celebrate as a family, a community, and a people. In addition to the customs and rituals we observe, each has its own special music which makes it special, and helps set the mood. In this course, we will explore the unique music of various Jewish holidays and ceremonies, their origin, and the role they play the celebration. We will also learn to sing some of the music to enhance our own experience of the festivities. The schedule is as follows: January 2: The Music of Jewish Weddings; February 6: The Secret Origins of Shabbat "Standards"; March 6: Purim: The Hidden Music of the Megillah; April 3: Pesah: The Music of the Seder; May 1: Songs of Israel: Music for Yom Hazikaron and Yom Ha'atzma'ut.
