    Magic and Sorcery in the Bible and Its World with Dr. Sharon Keller

    6:00 pm on Zoom |  Mondays, April 26, May 3 & 10

    Omens, oracles, and even magic are not the first things that come to mind when we think about the Bible, yet each of these provocative topics is an essential part of some of the Bible’s most familiar lessons and stories. Join us for a fun, engaging series as we study some often-overlooked tidbits of ancient Israelite customs.

  • Lessons with Cantor Yager

    By appointment


    Individual lessons with Cantor Yager are available for those interested in learning how to chant Torah, Haftarah, Megillat Esther, and/or other trope systems. Lessons can also focus on the mechanics and style of prayer leading. This can include learning individual prayers or even parts of an entire Shabbat service. No experience with chanting and/or service leading required. A familiarity with the Hebrew alphabet is useful but not necessary. Though not required, those wishing to lead at Shabbat and/or Holiday services are welcome to work towards this goal.


    To learn more, please contact Cantor Isaac Yager directly at cantor@brotherhoodsynagogue.org
