Rabbi Drorah Setel’s Sept 21 Message
Rabbi Drorah Setel writes, “What a joy it was to be together for the high holidays! We were so lucky to have outdoor space and (mostly) beautiful weather. As always, our observances were made more meaningful by the large number of participants. In addition to seeing each other in person, the highlight of our holiday season was dedicating and using our new ark, which literally glowed with light and color throughout our services.”
