IN-PERSON: Adult Trope Class

April 4 @ 7:15 pm - 8:45 pm

Taught by: Hazzan Shulamit Wise-Fairman

Weekly on Thursdays from 7:15-8:45pm

Join Hazzan Shulamit for this eight week IN-PERSON only course to learn trope, the musical system for chanting Torah from the scroll. Students must plan to attend all sessions, and home practice between classes is required. Carrying a tune is not required – If you are not sure if your voice is good enough, it is! 

The goal of this course is to make you ready to independently prepare verses of Torah to chant. At Kehilla, there are opportunities throughout the year for community members to chant Torah. 

Necessary Prerequisite: 

You must be able to de-code Hebrew confidently and accurately: knowing the Hebrew Alef Bet letters and vowels and being able to sound out Hebrew words. If you are going to take the Alef Bet & Beyond! course in January, you may be eligible to take this class. It will take committed home-practice and boost your Hebrew decoding skills tremendously. If you would like to take the class, Rabbi SAM to set up a 15 minute Hebrew decoding check in.

This class has an 18 student maximum. Participants in Kehilla’s Adult B’Mitzvah Program have priority. If the class fills up, we will start a wait list.
