Class Summary  

This 8-session class offers participants the fundamentals of Torah trope for  Shabbat. Since the Torah is written without punctuation, it is the job of the  trope to impart the context and grammar of the verse. Each lesson focuses  on a family of tropes, along with a discussion about technique. Not only will  participants learn the trope melodies, but they will be paired up with a  chevruta (study buddy) and will also gain practice being a gabbai, the one  who follows along with the reader, offering constructive corrections as  needed. During the week between each session, chevruta will meet on their  own to learn from each other, while one partner practices their chanting, the  other partner practices being a gabbai.  

Participants can come to the class having selected a Torah reading to work on for a future Shabbat, or the Days of Creation can be divided between  participants to work on.  

Participants receive handouts and recordings to practice with.  Interested persons contact:
