Rabbi Daniel Sherman

            The countdown is on: only 2 more days until our special weekend honoring Cantor Joel Colman.  The weekend kicks off with a special Friday evening on May 19.  Our Shabbat Service will begin in the Sanctuary at 6:00pm.  Rabbi Cohn and I will both share some thoughts and memories about our beloved clergy partner.  There will be special music and presentations as we express our love and appreciation for Cantor Colman and all he has meant to Temple Sinai over the past 24 years.  A Congregational Shabbat Dinner will follow featuring some of Cantor’s favorites.  Please make your reservations for dinner as soon as possible.

            The fun will continue on Sunday, May 21 with CantorColmanFest 2023 at Temple from 11:00am until 1:00pm.  There will live music, games, a bounce house, a Second Line and more.  We will have a cookout lunch in the auditorium and outside – please make a reservation so that we can make sure we have enough food for everyone (there is no charge).  And since we are honoring Cantor Colman, there will also be a “candy bar” plus sno-balls and cotton candy.  Please plan on dropping by and expressing our gratitude to Cantor Colman.

            Cantor Colman will officially retire over the summer, and we look forward to welcoming Cantor Rebecca Garfein and her family to Temple Sinai and New Orleans in July.

            This evening is our final Wednesday Night Live discussion of the season.  We’ll talk about the state of Temple Sinai today, reviewing this past year and making plans for the future.  We will also discuss ideas and suggestions for future Adult Education classes and topics.  I hope you can join me this evening on Zoom at 7:00pm.

            I look forward to seeing you this weekend as we honor Cantor Colman at Temple!
