More than perhaps anything else in the Jewish world music has the power to bring our community together in worship, celebration, and action. Join other young Jewish songleaders for dynamic sessions that develop skills; deepen knowledge of repertoire; introduce communal singing techniques; and hone leadership to enhance and recognize relationship-building opportunities in your congregations, camps, and communities. Special focus will address how to songlead online!
