Don't Drop the Torah
Learn to authentically sing the classic Iraqi prayers for Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur!
Sun Oct 9 at 11:30 am Pacific Time
Whether you’re a Jewish educator or lay person, you probably have never heard the Iraqi prayers for Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur, never mind learned to sing them, never mind in the authentic Iraqi pronunciation! In this crash course, you’ll learn some of the lively classics – including Adon Haselihoth, El Nora Alila, and Ahoth Quetana – in the traditional Iraqi pronunciation.
No prior experience, musical talent, or knowledge of Hebrew is required.
We will sing songs with easy-to-learn choruses. In addition, English transliterations will be provided, and you will be expertly guided through a breakdown of pronunciations and melodies, before we sing the songs together.
The fee for this workshop includes three gifts:
- Free copy of exclusive album, Ancestral Ways: Iraqi High Holiday Hits a cappella album by Iraqis in Pajamas – not available to the general public
- Free digital copy of The Flying Camel: Essays on Identity by Women of North African and Middle Eastern Jewish Heritage anthology 2022 edition
- 15% off coupon for all KHAZZOOM products at KHAZZOOM.com/Shop
