Learn To Sing: Moroccan Kabbalat Shabbat

Hosted By: European Academy for Jewish Liturgy

With Laura Elkeslassy, learn how to sing Song of Songs, chapter by chapter and then will delve into Psalms. Become familiar with the art of contrafact and learn 2-3 piyutim that can be used on Lecha Dodi.

  • I. Shir Hashirim
    • 1 chapter per week (8 weeks)
  • II. Psalms
    • 1 psalm per week (8 weeks)
    • Psalms can be taught in parallel with shir hashirim.
  • III. The art of contrafact: examples on Lecha Dodi (2 weeks)
    • We will spend 2 weeks learning piyutim in different maqam (Arabic music mode) and then apply them onto Lecha Dodi.

At the end of course you will organize a virtual kabbalat Shabat before sundown, led by fellow students from the course.

European Academy for Jewish Liturgy

The European Academy for Jewish Liturgy (EAJL) was founded with the purpose of enabling Jewish communities to sustain themselves. Many communities do not employ a professional Chazan (Cantor) and rely on the leadership of committed lay people. The special skills for this leadership need to be enhanced and sometimes taught, even from scratch. EAJL trains them to be inspiring, sensitive, and knowledgeable leaders of prayer services.
