Jewish Music Workshop Series

We are proud to introduce this year's Jewish Music Workshop Series on various topics of Jewish music led by guest musical artists. These workshops and services are open to the entire congregation, and are both entertaining and educational allowing us to study and interact with some of the most talented composers, performers, and teachers from around the world. This program is intended to expand our knowledge of the breadth of Jewish music, and encourage maximum participation in our music programs at Temple Sinai. We are so excited to learn from our guest artists this year and hope you will join us for some or all of these exciting events.
