7:00-8:00pm - That’s Not MY MiChamocha!
Platform: Zoom
Join TOR’s Erev Cantor, Ben Harris, for an ongoing exploration into the history and interplay of melodies, old and new, that are found in the liturgy. Have you ever walked into services and just not been able to catch onto a tune? Have you ever heard something for the first time and feel like you’ve known it forever, but have no idea where you know it from or why? Have you ever asked yourself why there are so many new Jewish tunes? The simple answer is that music is ever-changing, and Jewish music is no exception. In this series, we are going to look at a number of prayers and a number of melodies used for those prayers; we are going to explore new melodies that we think are old, old melodies that we think are new, and start to figure out why we associate these different melodies in different ways. There is no music background necessary for this series, all we ask is that everyone comes with an open mind and heart, and a readiness to sing, make music, and learn!
