Nigun means "tune", or "melody". The Nigun is vocal music sung to accomplish a purpose such as personal prayer, or joyous celebration. The sounds are largely made up syllables, such as "yai lai lai", "bim bim bam", or "dai dai dai". In part because there are no set words, this music is liberates the emotions, and helps bring together the spirit and a sense of holiness. The Nigunim that you will learn in this class can be used in many ways, such as to enliven a Shabbat dinner, to accompany dance, as on Simchat Torah, to bring people together as a community.
