Where can you find some of our DFSSM alumni during the summer?
Some could be found at Hava NaShira passing on their love and knowledge of Jewish music to cadres of Reform songleaders, some former Kutznikim celebrating Kutz@50, a group at Shirei Chagigah in London, a conference on liturgy and song arranged by Zoe Jacobs and Cheryl Wunch, others scattered around our continent at the 18 URJ camps. Still more bring their choirs to the North American Jewish Choral Festival, Kerhonkson, NY.
All bring their love for Jewish music to campers and singers alike, reaching out to possible candidates for the cantorate, modeling the modern cantorate. The bonds we form at HUC or afterwards in our work in the field are warm, strong and supportive.
If you have photos of yourself this summer sharing music and Judaism please share them with us on our Facebook page. If you aren’t yet a member, please be in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will see that you are added to our very active Facebook community.
We wish you a continued happy and restful summer.
