Torah Trope and Hebrew Prayer Classes

Members of our congregation, Sisterhood and Men’s Club are invited to broaden and strengthen their participation in MBIEE’s Shabbat morning services. Perhaps you have not chanted the haftarah from your Bar Mitzvah since you were young. Maybe you never learned to chant Torah or haftarah. Sometimes you might wish that reading the Hebrew prayers came more easily to you.

Mazal tov! You are at MBIEE where you can refresh your knowledge or learn new skills! Millie Brooks and Ariana Burrows are resources available to you. Millie will be happy to coach you in recitation of the Hebrew prayers. Ariana would be delighted to teach classes in Torah and haftarah trope. Let the office know of your interest in any of these educational opportunities (215-635-1505 or
