Shabbat Virtual Services

   Shabbat has always been the moment our community comes together. While certainly not the same, we are celebrating Shabbat with virtual services following guidance from the Conservative Movement’s Committee on Jewish Law and Standards. Friday night and Shabbat morning services are led by Hazzan Elisheva Dienstfrey and Rabbi Steven Rein.
   Scroll down for siddur pages and Torah and Haftarah readings.

Artist-in-Residence Jenni Asher: Violinist, Music Producer, Clinical Massage Practitioner
Saturday, April 17   
   "I am so excited to join you from California. A little about me: I am a
professional violinist, a cantorial student in my second year, Jewish
by choice, a mom to a 2-year-old and a wife to a mixed Egyptian Jew.
My early adult life was spent in London for bachelor's and
master's degrees in music and music education.
   "I enjoy spreading myself a bit thin with myriad interests, from cooking middle eastern food, to clinical bodywork for injured performing artists, to picking up new instruments such as cello and oud. I look forward to spending meaningful time together in prayer and discussion."
   Album "Yaldati" coming Spring 2021. Listen to Jenni's music here, and learn more about Jenni at www.musicianbodywork.com.
