Today is October 19, 2018; the
The Rabbinical Search Committee has chosen a candidate to visit our synagogue and conduct Shabbat services. Cantor Neil Schwartz will visit on Friday, April 11th, Saturday, April 12th, and Sunday April 13. He will conduct a Friday night service, join us for Shabbat dinner, lead the Saturday morning service and the model Seder on Sunday morning. Accompanying him on this visit will be his significant other, Miriam.
Cantor Schwartz grew up in Hibbing, Minnesota, helped lead congregations in Canada and Tennessee, among others, and currently lives in Minneapolis. The committee was impressed with his understanding of small town Jewish life and his considerable experience with teaching, leading services, and engaging with the larger community. He has a beautiful voice too! He and Simcha know each other, and are working together to coordinate the Shabbat services.
This visit is a wonderful opportunity for you to meet our top candidate and observe his skills as a spiritual leader. Please plan on attending as many of the weekend’s events as you can. We absolutely need your support with this critical part of the process of selecting a new spiritual leader.
Thank you for helping us welcome Cantor Schwartz to Congregation Sons of Abraham. I look forward to seeing you on this special Shabbat.
