Then We Will Sing

Why Some Sang While Others Danced at the Sea of Reeds

Interactive, Text & Thought

Referencing the text of the Beis Yaakov from a Chasidic Dynasty and the Zohar (a book of kabbalah), we will explore the miracles of the crossing of the Yam Suf (Sea of Reeds), as well as the power of Shira (song) using Hebrew text that will be discussed in English. The session will include opportunity for singing as well as group discussion.
