Shabbat Services with Rabbi Lerner

SAVE THE DATE:  Feb. 13.   Rabbi  Leigh Lerner will be back in Italy and will lead our services.  We  also have the honor to have Angela Buchdahl, Senior  Rabbi at Central Synagogue in New York, one of the most important reform synagogues in the United States.    Rabbi Buchdahl is  considered one of the U.S.’s most important reform rabbis.  She was  the first Asian woman to be ordained as  rabbi and began her career as a Cantor.  She will be leading a group of 30 confirmation students from her synagogue who are on a trip to Milan and Venice. Three of the confirmation students will be reading Torah for us, and young members of our congregation will be answering some questions for the group about life in Italy as a young Jewish person. Please put this on your calendar as this is a Shabbat not to be missed!  We encourage you to bring friends who are interested in Reform Judaism.
