NFTY-SAR Songleading Training at Hatikvah

March 13-15, 2020
YMCA Camp Thunderbird, Lake Wylie, SC

Are you a songleader, aspiring songleader or musician? Our annual SAR Songleading Workshop will again take place during Hatikvah Kallah (March 13-15). Spend the weekend working with singer/songwriter Jacob “Spike” Kraus, Jacob Shippel, and our Regional Head Songleaders to strengthen your songleading skills and expand your repertoire, while also songleading for Hatikvah Kallah. Note, you may not be a Hatikvah Helper AND participate in the songleader training - you must choose one. Songleaders of all ability levels, including beginners, are welcome! This event is only $125 for a great weekend of training and fun!

  • Return home with a skill set to take advantage of songleading opportunities in your youth group, congregation, and NFTY-SAR.
  • Learn how to effectively teach a song
  • Learn new melodies and be introduced to old favorites
  • Share best practices to continue your growth as a songleader after the program concludes

$125 USD

This event is open to any Jewish teen in grades 9 to 12.
