High Holy Days 2016/5777

High Holy Days 2016/5777

With Rabbi Aviva Goldberg and Chazzan Daniela Gesundheit leading us, and with a huge group of talented, dedicated volunteers, we celebrated Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur this year. Whether it was new musical pieces alongside the cherished oldies from both our choir and other musicians, or Aviva’s guiding us in dance on the second day of Rosh Hashanah, and so much more, we felt involved and delighted.

Our many children and teens contributed and charmed us with crafts, challas and enjoying the shofar sounds. Please look at our D’var Torah page to see how our rabbi, our chazzan this year and other members conveyed their insightful musings.  And thank you to all who participated, attended and volunteered, especially to Rabbi Goldberg, Chazzan Gesundheit and this year’s holiday coordinator, Jamie Flagal, our president (and leader of the children’s service on Yom Kippur).
