This weekend (Friday, April 1st through Sunday, April 3rd) we are pleased to invite you to meet and socialize with visiting Rabbinic Candidate Elyssa Joy Auster.
Ms. Auster will be davening with us on Friday night April 1st and offering a short d’var Torah. A Kiddush will follow services. She will also be with us for Saturday morning services where she will be reading, offering another d’var Torah, and leading the service. After Shabbat morning services there will be a light luncheon. On Sunday she will lead our morning minyan.
Everyone is encouraged to attend one or more of these services and/or social events so that they can have an opportunity to meet and speak with her. After you attend we hope you will let us know some of your thoughts by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
About Elyssa Joy Auster…
In addition to receiving her rabbinic ordination and Masters of Jewish Education this spring at Hebrew College, a significant portion of her prior education has been at area institutions including Boston University where she received a Masters in Theology and Brandeis University where she did her undergraduate work. Also, Ms. Auster has experience as an Acting Rabbi, Rabbinic Intern, Student Rabbi, Teacher, High Holy Day Cantor, and Cantoral Soloist in the Boston area, Illinois and most unusually in Fairbanks, Alaska. Her article on Jewish life in Fairbanks was published by the Jewish Forward last year. She is very much looking forward to coming to our synagogue for this opportunity.
