We took Ner Tamid "on the road" this past week.  It is all too common to have folks in San Diego say they never heard of us.  Well this week they did.  Those who have never heard of us heard Becky chant with precise ancient trope the words of Bible in Hebrew AND ENGLISH --one person told me she took them to tears as it sounded exactly like every mom who has ever wept for a stricken child.  They heard Olivia Pearl belting lyrics from Rav Nadav, harmonizing with her father Jon, with Leo and Bob jamming the plaintive notes of folk-blues.  They heard Larry Goldstein giving a poetry reading of Israeli poets, with Rafi on the Hebrew.  We have a lot to be proud of.  What we're doing is really special and we should redouble our commitment to it at home.  And we get a chance to do so tonight (Friday night)!  Come support us in experiencing it!

Coming Up

Kabbalah and Havdalah at the Rabbi's house - August 12th, 7pm.
