I am running 3 sessions during the day:

10:30am – Singing and Moving

Use gentle movement and gesture to embody personal and communal prayer, while we sing familiar prayers and verses to simple chants.

11:30am – Singing and Feeling

Taking the prayers we know and exploring the questions: What if I had made up these words myself, What if I had made up this music myself, How can I sing these familiar prayers and tunes in community so that they are shir chadash, a new song, every time?

3:10pm – Song Learning

Learn by ear some new prayer settings, chants and sounds that are filtering into communities in the UK and abroad. Music for many occasions in Jewish life, as well as more reflective moments. Bring your enthusiasm and a recording device (optional).
