Chanting / Prayer
Hebrew chant is a form of prayer and meditation that includes the melodic and rhythmic repetition of a sacred phrase. For many this has become an important spiritual practice to open the doors of the heart, quiet the mind, awaken our inner wisdom and to viscerally embody the words of our tradition. When we allow a chant to lead us into the silence that follows, we have an opportunity to listen for the voice of the Divine within us.
The practice of Hebrew chant has created a pathway for many to understand the deeper significance of our inherited tradition, and to create a bridge of personal meaning & connection to the text.*
Chanting does not require knowledge of Hebrew nor confidence in one’s “singing” voice. Only a desire to engage and to open your heart.
