January 21, 2015 – SVS Board Meeting – Opening Remarks

Written by Elayne and Rabbi Dan Grossman

As we begin, I want to share the following idea.  As Moses led the Israelites to freedom, song was their first expression of exuberant freedom.  As Miriam and the women cross the Sea of Reeds, they don’t sacrifice or kneel in prayer.  They sing: “Mi Chamocha (Who Is LikeThee).”  Song is the first expression of self when Jews are freed.

Let us work together so that the voices of Sharim v’Sharot express

  • Freedom for us
  • Joy for our audiences and
  • Wonder for our future.
