“When we sing, we pray twice.” That phrase is part of one of my favorite settings by composer, Michael Hunter Ochs, and it is certainly true!
This year is unique because we are singing via zoom! Summer is passing swiftly as I work with the TRT Band and Choir to create some music videos which we will used over the High Holy Day Season. It has been exciting and challenging to use technology to ‘create community’ and bridge the divide we are all experiencing. At the same time I am inspired and comforted by the warmth I feel as relationships deepen and as I get to know the members of TRT better. I feel grateful to everyone who has worked so hard to bring these projects to fruition, working fervently behind the scenes to pull these virtual High Holy Days together.
I’m honored to serve alongside Rabbi Marc Disick as we celebrate and consecrate the space we will create amishkan (sanctuary) which dwells in our hearts, in our homes and in our spirits! We may be distanced but we are ONE!
Wishing everyone healing, wholeness and health in the coming year.
