1. High Holydays THANK YOU!!!

On behalf of the entire High Holyday planning team – which included leaders and volunteers of from both B’nai Or Montreal and Dorshei Emet – I want to express my deepest appreciation to everyone who participated in our holy gatherings over the High Holydays. A special shout-out to Deena Schrier who took care of all our material needs, and to Lawrence Litwin the challah-bringer! Thank you so much, all of you, for bringing your full hearts, your beautiful voices, and your sweet neshamot to create a memorable and meaningful experience this year. What a profound privilege it was to serve and partner and connect and experiment in the many ways we did this holyday season! I am still feeling the joy and community-building that took place. 

And for our last evening together, Neilah and the Great Shofar – well words are insufficient to express the excitement of seeing our room fill to overflowing, pulling out more and more chairs, not enough prayerbooks – oy, that should be our biggest “problem”! Kol ha-kavod to all of you – to all of us! And may we be blessed to continue to create and experiment with new and deep and inspiring ways to be together!
