I was saying shnayim mikra today and bemoaned the fact I don't know how to read it with the trope in the Yemenite tradition. I was wondering if anyone knew where I can learn it from someone locally near me who can teach me. I've found some online resources, but I am more interested in someone who can teach me personally. Is there someone or an institution that is known in or near Brooklyn that can help me?

I've done some research myself but my leads came up cold.

I have a tikun of my own, if that helps.

  • That link certainly points me in the right direction but I was asking more if there was someone I could learn from locally. In fact it's mentioned in that thread but I can't message @MoriDoweedhYaa3qob Dec 17, 2015 at 17:12
  • If I were you, I would upvote the original question. I might have found a cd set that could help teach you.

    It seems to me this question is now sufficiently distinguished from the other in that the other asks for resources and by implication not a teacher, since the asker already mentions a teacher, whereas this asks for teachers specifically. I'm reopening; cc @DoubleAA

  • I an also a Ba'al Kri'ah and I live near Brooklyn. I will try to follow this question. But, in case I forgot, if you get an answer or locate someone, and don't mind my sharing a lesson with you, please ping me.
