This year’s Open Beit Midrash begins Tuesday night, October 20, with Joey Weisenberg teaching “The Torah of Music”
We are very excited to begin the fourth year of the Kane Street Open Beit Midrash on October 20, 2015. A catered dinner is served at 6:45 P.M. and our first class, “The Torah of Music,” with charismatic Jewish musical innovator Joey Weisenberg, follows from 7:30 – 9:00 P.M.
Open Beit Midrash is held almost every Tuesday evening from October 20, 2015 to April 12, 2016. Our teachers are talented and path-breaking and the setting is intimate and participatory. Our faculty this year includes some of America’s most talented and path-breaking Jewish educators, including Professor David Kraemer of the Jewish Theological Seminary, Rabbi Dayle Friedman of Hiddur: the Center for Aging and Judaism, and Rabbi Reuven Greenvald of the Jewish Agency for Israel. The program begins with a catered dinner at 6:45 P.M. and continues with class from 7:30-9:00 P.M. We sponsor eight three week mini-courses over 24 weeks. You may sign up for individual courses or purchase all eight courses — 24 classes and 24 dinners — for the subscription fee of $180.
Joey Weisenberg’s course will be held on October 20 and 27 and November 3. He will teach how to explore the soul of a melody – and how melody explores the soul. Students will experience music together by singing new nigunim, and then discuss the spiritual teachings of the music by studying musical-spiritual texts and stories from the Jewish tradition.
Beit Midrash is open to anyone, regardless of musical or Jewish knowledge or singing ability. All texts will be provided in English as well as in the original Hebrew or Aramaic.
Please open and read our brochure for more information and to register.
