Mifgash Musicale, a joint program of the Union for Reform Judaism and Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, is designed for synagogue musicians (singers, accompanists and choir directors) who have some experience leading worship but want to engage in more in-depth study of liturgy and repertoire for Shabbat and the cantillation for chanting Torah and haftarah. 

Experts in the field of Jewish music from HUC-JIR, The American Conference of Cantors, the Guild of Temple Musicians and the Union for Reform Judaism will teach classes at the historic Cincinnati campus of HUC-JIR. Students will have the opportunity to participate in master classes and receive individualized coaching from the faculty. 

Participants must be affiliated with a Reform Judaism congregation, be sponsored by a member of the clergy from their area, and be members of the Guild of Temple Musicians. (For information about the GTM, including membership, please contact us to request a brochure, or visit the organization online at www.guildoftemplemusicians.org).
