FRS is very proud to co-host Shirei Chagigah - the Movement for Reform Judaism’s biennial music conference. It means ‘songs of celebration’ and reflects the celebration of music and prayer which we will enjoy over this very special weekend.
USA Faculty confirmed: Merri Arian, Noah Aronson, Rabbi Noam Katz and Cantor Benjie-Ellen Schiller.
UK Faculty confirmed: Viv Bellos, Cantor Zöe Jacobs, Rabbi Laura Janner-Klausner, Rabbi Josh Levy, Kath Vardi, Cantor Cheryl Wunch and Rabbi Debbie Young-Somers
It will give you the tools and experiences to learn about and enjoy Jewish music and t’fillah (prayer) and is an opportunity to learn from the world’s foremost experts in the field of Jewish liturgical music.
Shirei Chagigah is not only for people who love to sing! For the first time we will be adding an extra dimension by having a programming stream dedicated to those in our communities who lead Shabbat services.
In addition the MRJ Choirs Festival will take place on the Sunday from 10am to 5pm and be run by Cantor Cheryl Wunch & Viv Bellos, Director of Music at Alyth.
