Welcome from Rabbi Aura

Rabbi Aura Ahuvia

Shalom. Welcome to the WJC website! As the still-somewhat-newish rabbi of WJC, I’m still meeting many of you for the first time. I would like to thank all of you, for welcoming me so sweetly and openly during my first few months. The Meet-the-Rabbi gatherings have begun, and are a fantastic way to not just meet me, but also to get to know each other in a deeper way. If you haven’t yet contacted meettherabbi@wjcshul.org to either host or attend, I hope you’ll do so now. Meet the Rabbi gatherings will be taking place through this winter and spring, and probably well into the summer as well!

One of the honors bestowed on new clergy to the Woodstock area is to offer the teaching for the annual Thanksgiving Interfaith Service. Here are the remarks that I made at this year’s service. I wish you all blessings of food, friendship and family.
