Connecting Interfaith Families to Jewish Life in Greater Cleveland by providing programs and opportunities for interfaith families to experience Judaism in a variety of venues, meet other interfaith families, and to connect to other Jewish organizations that may serve their needs.

Kirtan—call-and-response chant developed in India for devotional meditation and prayer—is at once contemplative, ecstatic and simply fun. Join Kirtan Rabbi Andrew Hahn and percussionist Shoshana Jedwab for an immersion experience in this cutting-edge Jewish practice. We will chant a lot and we’ll learn to create and lead chants, do chant-related breathing and meditation exercises and study texts about the history of Jewish chant. At least one session will be dedicated to kirtan percussion techniques.
