Torah Trope

Teacher: Elisa Pearlman

Level: Open to All

Description: The word ta’am means “flavor” and the ta’amei hamikrah (“trope marks”) not only show us how to chant each word in the Tanakh, but also add “flavor”, i.e. enhance the text, too. During this course students will acquire the tools to chant any part of Torah, while also looking at how the trope functions as an interpretation to the text. We will look specifically at the texts of Bereishit (The Creation) and the portion read at Rosh Hodesh.

No previous experience necessary.
