Welcome to Rabbi Aura Ahuvia

July 1st is the beginning of a new era for our congregation. It is with great pleasure that I again share our wonderful news. We have hired a new congregational rabbi.

Rabbi Aura Ahuvia joins us from Ann Arbor, Michigan. The board and I feel sure that she and our congregation are a great match. Coincidentally, Rabbi Aura's first Shabbat service will be on Friday, July 4th and we feel that in her honor, a little flag waving of our own and some fireworks are in order. I know that Rabbi Aura looks forward to getting to know everyone in the congregation. To that end, a volunteer team has been formed and will be arranging several "meet and greets" over the course of the year, and, of course, the Rabbi will be available to chat with congregants by appointment.

Welcome from Rabbi Aura

Rabbi Aura Ahuvia

During my interview process, I noticed that this place felt different—it is a really special community, and I marvel now to be privileged to join you.

This sacred work that I've embraced and committed my life to is the holy work of creating and strengthening community, and helping each and every soul find their Jewish voice and learn to sing. My hope and my prayer is to have meaningful conversations with you.

I look forward to meeting you, learning and laughing with you, praying and singing with you, and working and celebrating with you in the days and years ahead.

– Rabbi Aura
