Leyn In: A Torah Reading Workshop

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Sponsored by Erica and Robert Schwartz in memory of Nathalie Schacter Friedman and in honor of the bat mitzvah of their daughter, Gabby Schwartz.

Participants should be able to read and vocalize Hebrew text but no previous experience with trop is necessary.
