Here's What We're Hearing!

Dear Rabbi & Cantor, 

Thank you so much for making Emily's Bat Mitzvah an unforgettable experience for her and our entire family. The explanations, and the interaction with the children was wonderful, and your heartfelt spirituality was clearly shared by everyone in the room. My friends and family, both Jewish and non Jewish, have not stopped telling us how much they enjoyed the service. One of my friends, in an intermarriage, said she wants to come to a Friday night musical Shabbat. Another Christian friend said the service made her want to convert. Kevin's family couldn't get over what an inclusive and inspiring service it was. It was their first time in a Synagogue. Again, thank you both for all that you do.

Tammy & Kevin
