This might sound challenging but...its rather simple! You come, you learn a Hebrew or English phrase, you repeat it. The chants become more comfortable as we practice them; they become a form of meditation. We feel more connected to the pathways of the Torah, to each other, to ourselves. Come as yourself, try something new (and ancient), then come again. We await you with open hearts! 

When we join together as individuals in community to chant sacred phrases from our Jewish liturgy, we come to support each other in accessing our ancient selves and selves to be, in achieving old and creating new dreams, in examining and helping our sorrows and celebrating our joys. In changing together we find inspiration and intention for the day, the week, the month and are greatly awakended by the discovery of our own voice and the voices surrounding us. 

Melissa Schaffer leads Hebrew chant based on Jewish sacred texts for transformative spiritual growth. Melissa has been studying with Rabbi Shefa Gold since 2008 and completed an 18 month chant leadership course in 2010.
