Chanting is the melodic and rhythmic repetition of a Hebrew phrase drawn from Torah or liturgy.
Sometimes the sheer volume of Jewish prayers, collected over the centuries, can pose an obstacle to understanding the words’ meaning or tapping their transformative energy. Chanting is a powerful tool for exploring our holy texts deeply, quieting the mind, experiencing the sacred, and connecting with community.
This service will follow the general structure of the Shabbat morning siddur. We will chant short passages – sometimes a single phrase – from each section, and will integrate meditation, gentle stretching, study, and participatory aliyot into our davening. Includes Chanting and Drumming.
