Witty and wise, musical and meaningful. Recollections of our High Holy Day services, which ended just a few days ago, continue to influence and inspire many who attended. We thank Rabbi Aviva Goldberg and Chazzan Daniela Gesundheit for their leadership, and the many soloists, musicians, artists, staff and volunteers who gave so much of themselves to make this a memorable experience.
We also had outstanding contributions to this year’s D’vrei Torah from those in the community: Rabbi Goldberg’s own on Erev Rosh Hashanah and Kol Nidre; her collaboration with one of our young-adult members in a dialogue about the Middle East; and two other very profound and poignant ones from other members. They are posted here.
Our children’s program started with an early-morning Rosh Hashanah service for families with younger children,led by Aviva, and then throughout the services lots of fun activities including holiday crafts, singing with Daniela and making of challas.
