The sun lingers a little bit longer these days. Bulbs are beginning to sprout. Spring is in the air. And while this means I won’t need to use as much chapstick and hand lotion, I’ll need to start breaking out allergy pills instead!
Spring represents rebirth and new beginnings. One need only look at Judeo-Christian observances this time of year to recognize this. Both Passover and Easter honor these themes. However, we have some new beginnings to celebrate this weekend that may pique your interest.
This Friday night we will honor our incoming and outgoing board members. We will stream the service as usual, but it would be lovely to see your faces in person as we acknowledge the incredible work our trustees do for us.
Saturday morning, Kathy and I are mixing things up for young families. We have a fun sing along Shabbat song session planned. We sing the tried and true classics AND Kathy will be handing out percussion instruments. Nothing is more fun (or funny) than a cantor trying to rhythmically organize toddlers.
Wishing you all an early shabbat shalom and I hope to see you this weekend for the festivities.
Cantor Rabbi Kyle Cotler
