Special Erev Shabbat Service - Cantor's Installation
Friday, May 12 at 7:00 PM
Cantor Kay Greenwald will be singing with Cantor Edmondson, and Rabbi Margie Slome will participate in the installation.
Rabbi Marjorie Slome is the rabbi at West End Temple in Neponsit, New York. Rabbi Slome was an integral part of Cantor Edmondson's journey to the cantorate through her mentorship and guidance. Cantor Kay Greenwald, as the Director of Placement for the American Conference of Cantors, has played an important role in Cantor Edmondson's career. She has been there to guide the way, answer questions, and give advice as Cantor Edmondson transitioned from school to her first full-time cantorial position and finally to her new home here at Temple Emanu-El.  Join us for a special service and a celebratory oneg to follow in honor of Cantor Edmondson.
Baby Shabbat
Saturday, May 13 at 9:00 AM
