New Jewish Early Enrichment Music Classes for Families with Young Children
Welcome to Music Together® Sing Shalom, the new Jewish music class for families with young children (birth-age 5)!
The weekly parent-child music classes combine everything you love about the internationally recognized Music Together early childhood music education program with a carefully selected collection of familiar (and not-so familiar) Jewish songs from throughout the world. Music Together Sing Shalom classes introduce Jewish themes, holidays, and celebrate community through song, supporting parents and caregivers in introducing their children to a diverse, culturally rich Jewish heritage.
Each week, a community of families comes together to sing, dance, and play in a class led by a trained Music Together teacher with a Jewish background. This pilot program uses the Music Together song collections that families know and love, along with songs from the new supplemental play list of Jewish music. Families receive the Music Together song collection materials (book, CD, download code) and song pages and links to the new supplemental Jewish music.
Families will learn lots of ways to interact musically with their child, while supporting their development, strengthening family relationships, and helping them connect with the Jewish music tradition culturally. Music Together Sing Shalom teachers offer parents, grandparents, and caregivers, a unique window into Jewish culture, introducing Hebrew words through the universal language of music.
Music Together Sing Shalom classes are offered in partnership with local Music Together centers and are an exclusive offering of Music Together in collaboration with The Jewish Education Project. Funding for this pilot initiative is provided by UJA-Federation of New York.
