The ancient poetry of the Tehillim (psalms) has a deep spiritual power, a power we have forgotten in our time. This Shabaton will open for you the door to this universe. The singing of psalms is not just singing songs, but a spiritual practice that helps us access the strem of Divine energy.
We are very happy to announce that chazan Jalda Rebling from Berlin is coming to the Netherlands again! She will give a workshop Tehillim as spiritual practice and will be the hazan for our shabbaton. Another joyful event!
Jalda: ‘Let´s sing, let´s chant, let´s bless our lifes!’
In this workshop we will experience and recreate the beauty and deep energy of the ancient poetry. Jalda’s mother z.l. used to say: vart nisht oyf a nes, zog T´hillim – don’t wait for a wonder, say psalms.
We will examine why in the current liturgy the psalms often are a classical composition, or why we only use bits and pieces of it. We will experience how the ancient way of saying Tehillim, which the Talmud teaches, will open for us doors to a new appreciation of the ancient poetry.
In our shabbaton we will give special attention to the Tehillim of shabbath and to the special psalm that belongs to the parasha van de week, Pekudé.
