This week I have been a participant in Hadar Institute’s “Singing Communities Intensive.” Hundreds of people are gathered together at Congregation B’nai Jeshurun (BJ) in Manhattan to sing, teach, learn and listen, led by the amazing Joey Weisenberg and other inspiring teachers. Rabbi Aviva Richman, a teacher of Talmud at Hadar, integrates heart and song into her teaching and taught a two part class called Singing through Chaos. As we begin Sefer Shemot, The Book of Exodus, join our discussion on the role of music and song through chaos and into redemption. My apologies for some of the background noise as we recorded as a community was gathering to learn!
