Enchanted Journey with Piyut

  • JCC East Bay 1414 Walnut Street Berkeley, CA 94709 United States (map)

An experiential workshop for educators and beyond led by Rabbi Tsipora Gabai and Vavi Toran.

Connect with the rich heritage of this musical tradition and the different Kehillot (communities) from around the world, their history, folklore, food, customs and the special sounds and Piyutim they bring with them.

Learn a few Piyutim, try a variety of musical instruments, explore several educational curricula and discuss ways to bring it to your school, congregation or community.

Visiting artist Yair Harel’s residency at the Magnes and his workshop at Jewish LearningWorks  last year renewed interest in the ancient art of Piyut. Based on feedback from participants, we identified a need for follow-up programs that bring Piyut to Bay Area Schools in a thoughtful way. This is one such program.
