THURSDAY 7th JUNE TO SUNDAY 10th JUNE 2012
EAJL is working with TEFILLAH IN EUROPE (Learning for Leaders of Davenen – Lishmo’a, Lilmod Ul’lamed) on a residential seminar entitled Nigun, Nusach, Neshamah at Skeet Hill House, Kent, UK, from June 7th to 10th 2012. The residential experience is the brainchild of Chazan Jalda Rebling of Berlin and Chazan Jaclyn Chernett of London who met at the Conservative Yeshiva in Jerusalem last year. Another one of EAJL’s mentors, Chazan Jack Kessler who heads the Aleph Cantorial programme, will be teaching the course. “We want to bring our davenen leaders together to experience possibilities they haven’t even thought of through their tefillah so they can bring their neshama to their congregations” says Chazan Chernett. “We insist on high standards of nusach together with a deep spiritual engagement. We have found a beautiful, kosher venue in Skeet Hill House to house our learning”.
Details coming soon. Enquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org.

- Fluidity of oral tradition: liturgical and secular musical expressions.

- Sephardic Music is World Music: exploring diverse musical styles.
Practicum: Melodies as Gateways to the Heart
- Secular songs in the liturgy: making prayer accessible.
- We will learn many songs in many languages in their secular and liturgical forms.
- Adapting music you know and love to prayer; a very Sephardic tradition.
- We will explore why certain texts have generated such an abundance of interpretations, (i.e. L’cha Dodi, Yigdal, Adon Olam, Hashkivenu, etc.) and learn several.
- Stories, songs and prophets: Jews love to sing and tell stories. We will look at some songs and stories generated by the likes of Avraham, Moshe, Elijah and Noah as well as a few humorous tales that convey a deep spiritual and moral message.
- Maqams, Modes, Scales and Beyond
- If you’re not a trained Hazzan, there is a way to balance tradition (maqams/modes) with a more liberal approach to davenning.
- We will learn a few modes and practice with your favorite prayers.
- We will also learn traditional examples of Nusach from various Sephardic communities.
