“Rising Song Circles are groups of music lovers in Jewish communities around the world who join together regularly to study nigunim, nusach, and Jewish musical wisdom.”
Our circle will be guided by a wealth of virtual master classes created by Joey Weisenberg,
and by our own traditional/creative blend of davenology.
If you are unfamiliar with the Rising Song Institute, please check the website:
The goals of an Or Shalom Rising Song Circle include:
