A student in Tyler Herman’s An Actor’s Approach to Torah said: “I’ve studied and taught many of these texts, but this this class made these ancient texts come alive in a brand-new way!” Now, Herman brings his expertise and charismatic teaching style to the high holy days, and you can be sure he’ll go whole chag! Join this master teacher and acclaimed actor/director as we prepare for Rosh Hashannah, Yom Kippur, Sukkot, and Simchat Torah. Take your experience of these holidays to a new level as we learn to warm up our bodies, our voices, our imaginations, and our souls. Be prepared for some easy improvisation activities, some vocal and physical exercises, and loads of imagination gymnastics in this fun and informative course. No matter what your background or experience is, you’ll leave knowing more about acting techniques such as The Method, Meisner, and Grotowski, while deepening your emotional and spiritual connection to the Days of Awe. No acting training is necessary.

Co-Presented with the EDCJCC’s Theater J.
