Youth & Families
We are offering a 2 part voice class for interested teens, using the Natural Voice method, which is used by both singers and actors.
In Natural Voice we learn the shape of our instrument, the muscles etc, involved in creating sound. We also practice being sensitive to our bodies as we sing, so we can notice tensions and interruptions in the flow of breath and sound.
It's lots of fun and students can feel the benefits immediately. We'll do group exercises and each participant will have a chance to sing or orate for individual feedback.
Bring your family and a blanket and enjoy an outdoor family picnic meal with other R&B families.
5:00PM Shabbat Blessings and picnic dinner provided with support from The Harold Grinspoon Foundation.
Space is limited and exact locations will be sent upon registration. Meal provided by Stone Soup Cafe catering.
We continue to take Covid precautions seriously. Masks and social distancing will be required.

Join Gloria Matlock as she describes the supplementary educational work she is doing with Greenfield students. Gloria and her team teach communcation, homework, financial literacy and other topics every Saturday. Rabbi Andrea invites our TIG family to find out how we can bring human, financial and material support to the Twice as Smart program.
Please sign up for - and read -your How to Participate bi-weekly email for zoom information.
The session will be recorded, so folks can view it later if they are unable to attend.
Rabbi Andrea has experienced unexplained phenomena since the age of 14, when a Ouija board message saved the life of a family member. Since then, she has experienced and collected stories from her own life and that of trusted friends which appear to demonstrate the power of predictive dreams, post death visits, tarot card messages and the like. Each story represents a teaching. The opposite of frightening, the stories offer comfort and ease in a mysterious universe.
