Welcome to the tfilah (prayers) and trope section of our website. Here you will find all of the resources you need to learn the prayers from Shabbat services on Friday night and Saturday morning as well as how to chant the Torah and Haftarah along with the associated blessings. Each recording is accompanied by a PDF which will provide you with a visual image of the prayers or trope symbols you are hearing. Right now all of the prayers are referenced to the pages of Siddur Hadash.
We hope this page is a place where you will come often to familiarize yourself with these beautiful melodies which are the backbone of our weekly prayers and Torah reading. Many of the melodies you will find on this page have been in our tradition for generations. At Temple Sholom we encourage our congregants to actively participate in our services by leading a prayer or reading Torah or haftarah. If you would like additional assistance with learning any of the prayers or the trope please contact Ezra Konigsberg, Hazzan Sheni/Ritual Director, 203-542-7151, [email protected]
