Rav Hazzan Aliza Berger ordained at Hebrew College

All year long Aliza Berger has been doing her magic at Temple Emanuel – working with teens, connecting with 20-somethings, sharing her beautiful voice at services and events, delivering great sermons, connecting one on one with our members – while carrying a double load as full time rabbinical student and full time cantorial student at Hebrew College.

This weekend, Aliza was ordained as Rav Hazzan.  Many from our congregation joined our clergy and her family from Denver at the Hebrew College rabbinical ordination ceremony at Temple Reyim to celebrate with Aliza and thank her for her Torah and for her song, for her warmth and her decency, and to let her know how deeply grateful we are that she has joined our community and our clergy team.

We won the lottery when we got Aliza!
