We at the Schechter Rabbinical Seminary in Jerusalem are extremely proud of our students, faculty and staff, both in the Ordination Program and in the Mishlei Program who served as prayer leaders, sermon givers, organizers and providors of the overall High Holy Day experience to scores of Masorti synagogues and communities throughout Israel. Many thousands of Israelis were led in Masorti prayer by Schechter students in places as diverse as the southern towns of Sede Boker, Omer, Kiryat Gat; traveling north to Holon, Tel Aviv, Ramat Aviv, Raanana, Kfar Saba, Tel Mond, HaEmek Academy in Tel Teomim, Maaleh HaHamisha and in Jerusalem neighborhoods, including Malha, Katamon, the German Colony, Kiryat Yovel, Arnona and the Masorti Kotel.
In addition, we congratulate our men and women Rabbis, graduates of the Schechter Rabbinical Seminary, who are leading Masorti Congregations in cities, towns and kibbutzim from Eilat in the South to Kfar Veradim in the North, on providing an outstanding High Holiday experience. As a result of the dedicated work of these men and women, thousands more Israeli men and women, children and youth, have experienced a meaningful, full, egalitarian and emotional Jewish experience.
We take this occasion to extend our blessings to the Masorti Movement and the Rabbinical Assembly inIsrael, our partners, on providing prayer experiences to 74 congregations and prayer minyanim thoughoutIsrael. We are delighted to work together and look forward to expanding our partnership this coming year and in the future.
May it be God's will that we be privileged to continue together in our work on behalf of the future of the Jewish People in Israel, through strengthening their connection with Torah and the Jewish tradition in an open and embracing path.
We wish you all a wonderful Sukkot festival!
The Schechter Rabbinical Seminary
