For the first time ever, three first-year cantorial students spending their first year of study at HUC-JIR/Jerusalem served as Hazanim at Israeli congregations during the High Holy Days, in partnership with Israeli colleagues. David Mintz, Rachel Harrison, and Joshua Finkel conducted services in Zichron Ya'akov, Mod'i'in, and Haifa, respectively. In addition, Amanda Kleinman, Steven Long, and Alison Lopatin Podobedov helped lead services at the Murstein Synagogue on the HUC-JIR campus. Cantor Tamar Havilio coordinated this effort, while Cantor Mikhal Shiff Mater helped train the students. This experience offered the students exceptional opportunites for training and to connect with the Israeli community.
