Professional Development

You are here

Great cantors never stop learning. There are always more skills to master, more questions to ask, more scholarship to digest, more melodies to sing! The ACC seeks to engage our members in the continual process of improving ourselves and our craft through a comprehensive program of professional development – and that program is centered here.

Politics

Join us for A Taste of Resetting the Table, with Eyal Rabinovitch: We will introduce participants to a few core principles and one key skill to support conversations across political divides/disagreements, especially on contentious issues.

Liturgy

Part 1 – What’s next?? Rosalie will facilitate a conversation about what the next emergent questions are around hybrid worship. How will we define success and what might it look like? Where are the opportunities and pitfalls we can consider with our leadership? What did we learn before and during the Holy Days that can inform our thinking?

Musicology

The window for primary language acquisition closes by the time we turn five years old. After that, it is possible to internalize a language and even become fluent - but learning it will forever be a life-long journey.

Liturgy

We will study a passage in the Zohar that focuses on the sefirotic and erotic significance of the Shema. The mystical purpose of this central prayer is to stimulate zivvuga qaddisha, the sacred union of the divine couple: Shekhinah and the Holy One, blessed be He.
