We have a Part time Rabbi!

Jeff Shabes was very pleased to announce on Friday night that Rabbi Eli Courante has been hired as our part time rabbi. We all look forward to working together to create a vibrant, supportive, and creative religious community. 

The Friday night Oneg Shabbat was well attended and a huge success. Cantors Marcel Cohen and David Edwards, together with Reuven Grajner (before Shabbat) on the piano, led the lively participatory singing and services. 
The meal was excellent as usual, and everyone enjoyed themselves.

20160412 - Rabbi's function
Rabbi Eli Courante (he likes to be called Rabbi Eli) will be presiding over a minimum of 26 Shabbat services at The Lodzer as well as the Yom Tovim and all of the major holidays (except for Pesach) when his schedule permits. The Rabbi will perform B'nei Mitzvot, weddings and funerals as required and is available for counselling and visitation. 

Rabbi Eli has a kosher travel business that requires his attendance at various destinations throughout the year. His status as our Rabbi is on a part time basis, which of course is reflected in his remuneration. Currently, the Rabbi is in Europe leading several trips. He will return to us at the beginning of June. If you haven't had the pleasure of meeting this dynamic Rabbi, please come for a Hamishe Shabbat Dinner at the shul on June 10th. Please call the office for tickets.
