IN-PERSON: Adult Trope Class

January 19, 2023 @ 7:15 pm - 8:30 pm

IN-PERSON: Adult Trope Class
with Hazzan Shulamit

Title: Adult Trope Class
Taught by: Hazzan Shulamit Wise-Fairman


Weekly on Thursdays from 7:15-8:30pm

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! 

You must be able to de-code Hebrew: 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 are eligible to take this class. It will take committed home-practice and boost your Hebrew decoding skills tremendously.
