Jewish Meditation & Chant Circle will not meet in August @ Congregation Beth HaTephila
Sep 15 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Jewish Meditation & Chant Circle will not meet in August @ Congregation Beth HaTephila | Asheville | North Carolina | United States

Just as healthy foods nourish us through the blood stream, so Jewish meditation nourishes our “soul stream.” Meditation can be transformative, taking us from the intellectual awareness of ourselves to a deeper spiritual practice that links us to Judaism in the most profound way. Each mitzvah, holy day and cycle of life has its own rhythm, nuance, taste and character. Jewish meditation is a practice of infuing their essence into our daily spiritual lives.

Ready to give it a try? Join us (usually) on the first and third Sunday of each month from 1pm – 3pm. No previous meditation experience necessary.  This opportunity is free and open to all. Congregation Beth Ha Tephila, 43 North Libery Street in North Asheville.

Learn to Chant Torah Class
Oct 27 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

LEARN TO CHANT TORAH

You, too, can learn to chant Torah portions on Shabbat! Beth Israel Synagogue
will offer a series of classes this fall on learning the ta’amei ha-mikra (Torah
cantillation marks, or trope). No previous Torah chanting experience is
presumed, but you will need to know how to read Hebrew at least basically (i.e.,
how to pronounce words written in Hebrew, even if you don’t understand them).
It is not necessary to be able to read musical notation. All of the trope used in
regular Shabbat Torah chanting will be covered (we will not cover haftarah
trope or the special tropes used for holidays). The course will also cover the
function of cantillation marks as an aid to understanding the Biblical text and as
a guide for stressing the correct syllable, as well as some of the common
problem areas of proper Hebrew pronunciation. Frank Goldsmith will teach the
classes and will provide written and recorded materials.
The classes will be taught on five consecutive Sunday evenings beginning on
October 27 and concluding on November 24, from 6:00 to 7:30 pm in the social
hall at CBI. Each student will also be offered an aliyah to chant after
completion of the course. Thus you will have plenty of time to practice before
stepping up to the bima.
To register for the classes, please contact the CBI office, 828-252-8660, or
admin@bethisraelnc.org, by no later than Friday, October 4, so that we will
have time to prepare a sufficient number of materials for the students. Pursuant
to CBI’s policy for adult education events, there is a charge of $18 for CBI
members and $36 for non-members. Checks should be made payable to
Congregation Beth Israel and given to Lee when you register.
