Do you love to sing?
Does your heart open when singing with others?
Do you miss being in community, joining voices?
For these reasons and more—there’s Joyful Song Circle with Michelle and Susan! Michelle Wolf and Susan Berman are spirit sisters and co-creators of music and ritual. For several years, they’ve been bringing together groups to sing, laugh, and form community through song. They offer an eclectic mix of Jewish, traditional, and contemporary chant and song that weaves together themes from the seasons, the moon, and the range of human experience.
The Boulder JCC is hosting Joyful Song Circle for two upcoming evenings. Learn more and register here.
All levels of music knowledge/comfort are welcome, and no specific knowledge of Hebrew or Judaism is required.
Testimonial from a previous participant:
We all felt welcome, no matter our experience with or skill at singing. Their choices of songs and prayers pulled from a range of emotions and led to a feeling of deep connection within the
group, while we were each encouraged to share our voices. We left feeling inspired!
