Lunch + Learn: Exploring Voice, Music, and Jewish Exegesis

07/16/2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT

Together we’ll explore how the exegetical concept of PaRDeS* can be useful for appreciating Jewish liturgical music. We’ll then embody sacred song with our entire body-mind-spirit. Led by Builder Matthew Ellenwood, this session will feature Matthew’s original music and personal explorations inspired by composer Michael Isaacson’s book Jewish Music as Midrash.
