Read and Lead

Interested in learning Torah Trop (chanting)?  In an hour, Jonathan Salzedo can teach you enough to be dangerous on the bimah, or you can spend a lifetime honing this skill.  Schedule a free session with Jonathan to learn some basics, or to work on a portion you are assigned to read, or to discover a new trop, or to just crack a few trop jokes.  (408)829-8116, jonathan@salzedo.com
