Winter concert ‘Call to Prayer’ collaborates with the Augsburg Choir, Zafer Tawil, as well as commissions new work by Joshua Fishbein.
Many of us have heard, told and retold the tales of our fearless matriarchs. The Torah is full of women—but not all of them are recognized to the same level as their male counterparts. What's up with that?
I am so honored to be your new Hazzan, to be the shlichat tzibbur (prayer leader/ messenger) for this fantastic community. I look forward to singing with you as the weeks and years progress.
The High Holidays are a time to reflect, renew and refresh. It is a time where our souls are laid bare, our brokenness exposed – and the power to heal comes from the strength and vibrancy of this community, joining together in strength and song.

When my kids were little, Friday nights were evenings spent together. Mostly, we’d light candles and have some bread. Consistently, Danny and I needed some down time from our crazy unbalanced weeks, which consisted of driving to work, driving to daycare, running the dishwasher, running the washing machine, running to the grocery, running to Target – you get the picture.
Needless to say, when Friday night came we had what is now infamously called “Friday Face” – a resting blank face that looks a little frustrated and a little checked out. Therefore on Friday nights I had one request: We be together, but we not talk or create too much energy. So, I instituted Friday movie night. We’d pick a movie on demand, pop up some corn, throw in some junior mints or milk duds (Jordy is not a mint fan), and we’d stare at the screen…in remarkable silence.
