PROGRAM

Girls have an opportunity to integrate the Jewish experience, Torah thoughts, and personal reflections with their art, while learning basic and advanced skills. Tizmoret Shoshana accommodates both girls with little or no art experience and those who are at highly advanced levels in their art form. The only requirement is a desire to spend two weeks immersing oneself in creating, learning, and sharing in the arts.

Tizmoret Shoshana is named in memory of Rebbetzin Shoshana Poupko Feldman z”l, who led shiurim for many years and served as one of Tizmoret’s scholar-in-residence. A true Renaissance woman, Rebbetzin Feldman was a brilliant Torah scholar, dynamic speaker, and accomplished pianist. She was learned in all areas of Tanach, and gave one of the longest running shiurim (Torah classes) in Baltimore. Her leadership, insight, and creativity inspired Tizmoret Shoshana and all who were blessed to know her.

Under the guidance of a dynamic professional faculty, Tizmoret Shoshana provides training in the following art forms:

Chamber Music:  Baroque, Classical, Romantic...

Vocal Music:   Solo, Ensemble ...

Visual Arts:  Drawing inspiration from the beautiful...

Drama and Puppetry;  Improvisation, mask-making, acting...

Creative Writing:  Writers express their vision..

Dance:  Ballet, Modern, and Israeli Dance

 

 

 

JEWISH VALUES

An important focus of Tizmoret Shoshana is the development of participants' spiritual commitment. Daily times are reserved for prayer and Torah study, and Shabbat is observed with tefila, discussion groups and presentations by scholars-in-residence.

The intent of Tizmoret Shoshana is to provide a setting in which the Torah-observant girl can explore and develop her unique talents. The required dress code is knee-length skirts and shirts with sleeves and tznius (modest) necklines. Food is "glatt" kosher under strict Rabbinical supervision. All dairy ingredients are Chalav Yisroel. Two mashgichim are on premises the complete time we are in session.

The natural setting of the beautiful Berkshire Mountains next to a serene mountain lake serves as an inspiring backdrop for the integration of spiritual expression and artistic development. In an informal setting conducive to exploration and self-discovery. Participants are encouraged to explore what it means to be a Jewish artist.

Questions to ponder:

  • If talent is a Divine gift, how can it be used to serve G-d?
  • How can the arts be used to inspire and to elevate?
  • How do Judaism and the Jewish experience inform one's art?
