The UPJ hosted the second UPJ music conference - Shir Chadash (A New Song) in Sydney on 19-22 November 2015.
Shir Chadashwas co-hosted by the Emanuel Synagogue and North Shore Temple Emanuel, as well as the Emanuel School. The conference featured skills and repertoire workshops, opportunities to take part in Shabbat services at local congregations, and a special havdalah concert on Saturday night.
Many talented individuals in our region served on the Shir Chadash faculty - and in particular, we are thankful for Cantor Michel Laloum's and Judy Campbell's leadership - and we were also thrilled that Rabbi Danny Freelander was our very special guest presenter.
Stay tuned for the next Shir Chadash conference, tentatively scheduled for 23-26 March 2017 in Melbourne!
