High Holidays at The Birmingham Temple

Just completed my first High Holidays as Music Director of The Birmingham Temple Congregation for Humanistic Judaism. This feels like a real milestone–many thanks to Rabbi Falick, to the Temple staff, and to our fabulous professional and volunteer choirs for their amazing work!

Here are some musical highlights of our Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur Evening and Morning Services:

Appointed Music Director at The Birmingham Temple in Farmington Hills, Michigan

It’s official!

I’ve been appointed the new Music Director at The Birmingham Temple Congregation for Humanistic Judaism. My first Shabbat service will be July 14.

The Birmingham Temple was founded in 1963 by Rabbi Sherwin T. Wine (1928-2007) and eight families seeking to establish a new temple in suburban Detroit. The Temple offers a warm and welcoming community of people who are committed to exploring the application of Humanistic values in all areas of human experience against the background of a modern and relevant Jewish culture and identity. Consistent with these values, there are no barriers to full participation by individuals or families of mixed heritage.

When I first set foot inside The Birmingham Temple three years ago I could never have imagined what a huge role this community would come to play in my life. Honored and humbled to share that I will be assuming this new post in July!
