Virtual Opportunities for Prayer

“When you pray, pray in the synagogue of your city; if you are unable to pray in the synagogue, pray in your field; if you are unable to pray in your field, pray in your home; if you are unable to pray in your home, pray on your couch; and, if you are unable to pray on your couch, meditate in your heart.” Midrash Tehillim

As we shared a few weeks ago, Cantor Cadrain recently let us know the bittersweet news that she will be joining Temple Israel in Westport, CT as their Senior Cantor. She will be greatly missed by all of us at Central, both on the bimah and in the myriad other ways she contributes to our community. We hope you will join us as we honor Cantor Cadrain and her nearly decade-long tenure at Central, and offer our best wishes to her and her family as they embark on this new journey.
