Rabbi Meredith Cahn will be leading our services this year. She has been created a new High Holiday prayer book for us. The new Makzor is “user friendly” and will incorporate the prayers and songs with both English and Hebrew transliterations.  Carole Friedman and Mike Lerner will be leading the music.

At each of our services members of our congregation may have an opportunity to share a drash, or some thoughts or personal reflections, or a reading appropriate to the holiday.  We will have one speaker at each of the services. Scheduled to speak so far are Patti Breitman, Dahlia Kamesar and Mike Lerner.   We need to schedule this in advance so please get in touch with me this week to let me know if you think you might be interested in being one of the speakers
