Learn to Chant Torah

Learning to chant Torah is a useful skill and can be a wonderful way to participate in the community.  After learning the trope signs and their associated melodies, you can make your way through most of the Chumash, the Five Books of Moses, where these symbols are used.

TBI uses a slightly different trope system than many other communities, but most other systems are similar enough to not cause confusion.  You can listen to the trope here.  Download a PDF of the trope or follow along below.

For a detailed description of trope and the cantillation system of reading Torah see the Wikipedia article.

To listen to the trope system for Haftarah, click here-and blessings before and after.
