Final Cantor Chronicles Entry

by Congregant Liz Gellis

It has been a pleasure to speak monthly to Cantor Marci about her rabbinic studies and observe how she navigated her path to becoming the JCV Rabbi.

Cantor Marci will receive her s’micha (ordination) on June 22 via Zoom. The word s’micha derives from a Hebrew root that means “to rely on,” in the sense of “lean on, ”or “to be authorized.”

JCV members are invited to a “watch gathering” at the JCV on Saturday, June 22, 7:00pm to 9:00pm where we can kvell (Yiddish for “beam with pride”) and be together. Light refreshments will be provided.

Cantor Marci cannot be in the building with us as she has to be on her own screen at home, but she will feel our love.

Mazel Tov to Cantor Marci, her family, and the entire JCV family!
