Three weeks till Yom Tov! Got your membership sorted? Fantastic. Now meet your chazzanim:
Avram Mlotek and Yael Kornfeld are leading our tefilla for the High Holy days. Avram is a blogger for Shma - Journal of Jewish Ideas, and his writing has been published in The Huffington Post, The Forward, and Tablet. His Rosh Hashana drasha is sure to inspire you. Yael works as the synagogue outreach social worker at DOROT, an organization devoted to alleviating social isolation among seniors in New York City. She and Avram also host a Shira Hadasha minyan in their home.
Like to meet them? Book your place for Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur and you'll get to spend a whole lot of time together!

We need a few more volunteers for drasha giving, so please be in touch if you can help out.
