Join Us As We Celebrate!

Congregation Adat Reyim is excited to formally welcome and install Rabbi Chana Leslie Glazer to our “Community of Friends”. Rabbi Glazer joined our synagogue in July 2020 at the height of the pandemic, but with her extraordinary gifts of compassion, intellect, and persistence, she has carried our congregation through these difficult times.

At last, we are able to formally install her as our rabbi in a sacred ceremony committing ourselves to strengthen our congregation with her leadership. Join us in person or online January 29, 2022 as we formally begin this new chapter of renewal and hope with our rabbi, Chana Leslie Glazer.

A weekend of special services and activities will celebrate this occasion. Read below or explore these links to find out more.
