High Holiday Highlights

Student Rabbi Aria Caligiuri

Student Rabbi Aria Caligiuri from the Hebrew Union College in Los Angeles officiated our High Holiday Services this year. She did a great job, has a beautiful singing voice and welcomed the New Year with some terrific Shofar blowing!

It was great to see almost every one of our members during Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
