Shira: Our JQuest Music Track

We are thrilled to offer program for 5th, and 6th graders who love music and want to learn about Jewish life through the modality of music. This special Music Track of JQuest is called “Shira” (song in Hebrew). Students in Shira get to study with Cantor Korn on a weekly basis, learning how they can connect meaningfully to Judaism through music. They will be exposed to many of the same key topics as the grade-level JQuest students (Torah, Hebrew, prayer, Jewish history, Israel, etc), but the modality of learning will be very different, as will the details of the curriculum. Students in this program will gain specialized knowledge and skills, including the art of cantillation, nusach (Jewish musical modes), lifecycle music, and more. Please note that participation in Shira is in lieu of grade-level JQuest classes. For more information about Shira click here.

Junior Choir

Our Junior Choir is for all students in grades 3-6. It’s an opportunity to have fun with friends while singing cool Jewish music and hanging out with Cantor Korn. Rehearsals take place during JQuest Tefillah (prayer). The choir will perform music in Hebrew and English from a variety of traditions in a myriad of styles. This is a great way for our students to learn more about Jewish music and have the opportunity to show their Jewish pride by sharing their talents at our monthly family services, and other occasions throughout the year.
