Rebekah Goldman

Welcome Rav Rebekah Home from Israel

The Betenu Board is delighted that Rebekah Goldman will serve as Betenu's Rabbinic Intern, following her studies in Israel this past fall.

Last summer,  Betenu congregants enjoyed Rav Rebekah's beautiful voice and warm presence, as she led us in prayer and song.  She will return to Betenu on January 23, when she will lead Shabbat evening services.   You are also invited to join her on Sunday January 25 at Noon for "brown-bag" brunch and an Adult Discussion Group about her experiences as a Rabbinic Student in Israel.
