Hebrew Chant

Rabbi Shefa GoldRabbi Shefa Gold develops and leads Hebrew chants based on Jewish sacred texts for transformative spiritual growth.

With her focus on Hebrew chanting, Rabbi Shefa presents workshops based on chanting, ecstatic meditation, and Jewish subjects. Also, she is available for performing services as a rabbi. She developed and taught the Kol Zimra Chant Leaders’ Training program (through ALEPH) for many years.

She has written several books (including The Magic of Hebrew Chant and Torah Journeys) and has published several CDs (such as Chantsformations and Shir Delight). See the online store for her books and CDs. Her Modah Ani chants are available on this site and through an iOS app in the App Store.

Chant is the bridge between the inner life and the outer expression; between the solitary practice and the shared beauty of fellowship.

A Message for Our Time

Rabbi Shefa wrote an article about our current challenges for The Jemez Thunder, her local newspaper in New Mexico. It’s available on this site in time for Chanukah: Here’s the Miracle.
