Dr. Nehemiah Polen
The world of Hasidism is famous for its musically creative and emotionally powerful niggunim. This session will explore how this rich legacy of niggun assists in the formation of one’s inner self and the cultivation of one’s spiritual development. We will listen to and learn from niggunim and also study Hasidic texts that view niggun as the true exploration of spirituality in a way that affirms its richness, diversity, and unity. Texts will be in Hebrew and English.
