Drums are powerful tools of group celebration and ecstatic meditation. The Bible reveals that the sound of drumming, the blowing of rams’ horns (shofar), cymbals, chanting and dancing were embodied ways our ancestors celebrated the drama of Spirit. Romemu sacred drummer and veteran Jewish educator Shoshana Jedwab, will lead us with drums and shakers in familiar prayers and in her own compositions. Bring a drum or shaker if you have one; otherwise one will be provided.
