Singing and Spirituality: High Holy Day Music Speaks to Our Souls with Cantorial Soloist Holli Berman
Wednesday, August 26th 7:00 – 8:30 pm
How do the Jewish songs of your youth make you feel today? What flashes of insight do you gain from hearing a new melody to a familiar prayer? In our time together, we will listen to various traditional and new High Holy Day melodies and discuss their emotional and spiritual power. Begin to prepare for the Days of Awe by joining me in this musical journey.
