Richard Kaplan will lead a music-infused day of experiential learning as Congregation Bet Haverim prepares for the High Holy Days, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday. The day will include songs from Jewish sacred world music and exploration of “New Cosmologies,” quantum physics and the essential, spiritual knowledge of the non-dual view of self and world, a news release said.
Kaplan is a cantor, teacher and ethnomusicologist who last visited CBH in 2006 with the ALEPH Caravan. A singer, songwriter and pianist for more than 40 years, he serves as cantor at Temple Beth Abraham in Oakland and leads the Shir HaShirim (Song of Songs) Minyan in Berkeley.
His CDs include “The Hidden One: Jewish Mystical Songs” and “Life of the Worlds: Journeys in Jewish Sacred Music.” Samples of Kaplan’s music can be heard at www.Kaplanmusic.com; click on “Recordings” and follow the link to cdbaby.com.
The program, which includes lunch, is free for Kol HaNefesh sponsors; for others the cost is $20. For more information, contact Jane Rabin at email@example.com.
