Shirei Chagigah
July 09, 2015 - July 12, 2015
(The Movement for Reform Judaism) (Community Events)

Shirei ChagigahShirei Chagigah is the new name for 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.

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. Through a series of workshops and services you will explore the use of music to enhance religious services, learn new melodies and choral harmonies for traditional prayers and be part of a remarkable community.

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. Our Shaliach Tzibbur course is designed for you whether you have been leading services for many years or whether it’s something you would like to start doing. It will be taught both by our American faculty and by our very own rabbis.

In addition the MRJ choirs festival will take place on the Sunday from 10am to 5pm and be run by Viv Bellos, Director of Music at Alyth, and aims to enthuse, encourage and inspire synagogue choirs of all abilities from around the country. It will provide opportunities to work in depth on performance pieces, repertoire, warm up techniques and troubleshooting vocal difficulties. 

As the conference is non-residential we will be offering host families for all participants from outside London or we will be negotiating rates with local hotels if you prefer.

Come and join us as part of a truly memorable weekend where you can learn for yourself and learn to take back to your community.
