Cantorial leadership will be provided, as in the past, by Scott Rapaport, who after 20+ years with us, is an extended member of our congregational family.  Our own Beth Strassler, student for cantorial ordination, will share the bimah with Scott and provide variety in vocals and melodies. Many of our talented Hebrew School alumni will chant Haftorah.

David Strassler will again lead the Family Service on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, and will blend the conclusion of his service with the adult service upstairs. His mix of education, stories, and prayer “highlights” for all ages is a joy!!

We are excited to initiate our new book: “Machzor Eit Ratzon”.  With its combination of prayer commentary, extensive transliteration and clear layout, our ritual committee expects it to enhance your service experience.
