Rabbi Judy's Congregation Receives Grant
From the Kallah Project
B'nai Israel in Monroe, LA, where Judy serves as Rabbi, recently received a grant from the Kallah Project. The congregation was one of only 5 congregations in North America to receive this honor. The money from the grant will be used to hold three congregational retreats over the next three years to promote Jewish spiritual life and learning in the community. The first Kallah is scheduled for the weekend of January 26-28, 2018 at The Wesley Center in Woodworth, LA.
Visiting the Sick, Funerals and Unveilings
A large part of Rabbi Judy's rabbinate is spent visting the sick, comforting them and their families and helping them to heal or accept the inevitable end of life. Rabbi Judy uses her soothing voice and music abilities to help comfort those in need of healing.
Rabbi Judy is there to comfort families in times of need. She has conducted many funerals and unveiling ceremonies. She customizes and personalizes each service and includes the beautiful chanting of the El Male prayer.
