NOTE: TRANSCONTINENTAL'S EXTRAORDINARY NEW OCTAVI RELEASES (TeNOR)
Our choral subscription (TENOR) is sent out twice a year as a "resource packet" for your congregation's music library. Of the 20 pieces we usually include, most cantors/music directors usually find several pieces they wish to order multiple copies of (for their volunteer children's and adult choirs). The others they keep in the library, building that congregation's resources. The music resources stay at each congregation for future cantors/soloists/music directors.
We don't accept returns from the TENOR plan or credit back copies. They are highly discounted and sent as single copies. The shipping charges (back and forth) are usually more than the cost of the music. You may wish to offer items you cannot use to a cantor colleague or local public high school choral director (for their choral concerts).

My Jewish World: An Early Childhood Music Curriculum (Book/CD set)
Music can be a wonderfully effective teaching tool for preschool aged children. My Jewish World guides teachers through the process of introducing and utilizing song in the classroom to teach Jewish values.
In her comprehensive and easy to follow book, Judy Caplan Ginsburgh includes twenty-six songs, religious and secular, that will help to facilitate an environment of fun and learning. Each song addresses important Jewish concepts and many use Hebrew words and prayers. Judy provides comments, activities, and creative ideas, specific for each song, which can be used in the classroom to learn about being Jewish every day. The importance of saying the Sh'ma each morning, learning the Hebrew words for colors, understanding body parts, and the value of cooperation are only some of the Jewish concepts touched on in the book.
In addition, Judy Ginsburgh includes a list of suggested books for many of the topics. These books help to reinforce and expand the lessons laid out in the curriculum.
With a helpful glossary of Hebrew and Yiddish terms and the companion music CD, My Jewish World is a wonderful guide to making music significant in the Jewish classroom.
