Join us weekly as we learn to chant Torah. We will explore the history, function, and melodies of the trope*/cantillation marks that are used to read and chant Torah. 

Please contact Cantor Jacob Niemi with any questions.

Please review TBE’s in-person guidelines before attending this event in person.

* The cantillation/accent marks used with the Hebrew Bible are known in Hebrew as taʿamei ha-mikra (טעמי המקרא), which means “accents of the Bible,” or just tʿamim (טעמים), which means “accents.” In addition to “accents,” these marks are also known in English as “trope symbols.” The musical motifs associated with the signs are known in Hebrew as niggun or n’ginot (not to be confused with Hasidic nigun) and in Yiddish as trop (טראָפ). The word “trope” is sometimes used in Jewish contexts with the same meaning.
