    To members of the Jewish Music Group of the new International Forum for
    Jewish Music Studies

    Thank you for joining via Humanities Commons, glad to have you on board.

    We are instituting ‘speed sessions’ on 28 July (and hopefully on the last
    Tuesday of every month in the COZ slot) where we invite people, whether
    scholars or practitioners or archivists to present something of interest to
    them in up to 10 minutes with a five-minute discussion. We hope to have 6
    people presenting on these days thus making a very lively and stimulating
    session. Possibly we will call it ‘Lightning Strikes’?

    For this we are reaching out to those who have already joined the Forum to
    invite you to our ‘speed disseminating’ sessions, so I would like to invite
    you to participate in the first one in the COZ slot on Tuesday 28 July, and
    if you would like to, what will be the title of your 10 minute presentation?

    If you have any other ideas or suggestions, they will be welcome. This Forum
    is member driven – it’s a platform for you to dance on. So, let me know what
    you would find of benefit to you and your work, and whether you will present
    something in the session on 28 July

    Shabbat Shalom

    Yours sincerely

    The ‘Speed Sessions’ (last Tuesday of the Month in the COZ slot) will be an opportunity to speak about ‘What is on your Mind’. The Theme for 28 July is:

    ‘High Holidays: what will they sound like in Lockdown and how might this impact on cantors in the future’.

    This is a cross demoninational platform.

    If you woud like to speak for ten minutes addressing this subject, or telling us what  is happening in your own area/shul please get in touch.

    Best Wishes


Only members can participate in this group's discussions.
