Kirtan Rabbi at Wesleyan

Micah Weiss ’10 and Franni Paley ’10 write:

Reb Drew is a rabbi in the Reform movement who “weaves traditional Jewish liturgy and musical modes into the increasingly popular call-and-response chant technology from India, known as Kirtan.”

His main vocation is to make Torah accessible, deep and fun, — to Jew and non-Jew alike — in a way that is participatory and memorable. David Leipziger Teva, Rabbi and Director of Religious and Spiritual Life at Wesleyan University, recently wrote to Rabbi Hahn, saying, “You have enlightened our community in countless ways. I am envisioning your coming back every eighteen months or so. We should not let students graduate without being exposed to your Torah.”

Come for an afternoon and evening of “great energy, passion and melodic flow.”
