I hope you spent the recent Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur holidays in ways that were meaningful to you. Those who attended the Or Emet programs had the pleasure of seeing some of our own youngsters among the members sharing in presenting our services.
At the Rosh Hashanah service, Jewish Cultural School alums took part. Recent Middlebury University graduate Sam Wegner led the candle lighting, high school junior Ian Zukor offered an insightful personal commentary, and Leah Chazdon, whose B’Mitzvah was just last month, led a responsive reading.
At the Yom Kippur afternoon service, 4th grader Julian Young did a wonderful job leading us (along with his dad, Adrian) in reading the Yom Kippur Resolutions.
And let us not forget that all of the services were beautifully led by Jewish Cultural School alum (and our rabbinate candidate) Eva Cohen.
