It has been about a year since I was ordained a rabbi – a dream I have had for a very long time. I am a rabbi without a single congregation. I have the great fortune of being able to serve whenever and wherever I am needed. I traveled to Northern California for the High Holy Days this past year. I visit congregations all over the world as a guest rabbi/cantorial soloist. I meet some wonderful people and I see some beautiful and memorable places.
I have just recently booked a cruise to serve as Rabbi for the Passover holiday. The cruise sails from Dubai to Singapore stopping in several ports in India and Sri Lanka. Excited does not even describe how I am feeling. This will certainly be a trip of a lifetime and I am looking forward to exploring, learning and sharing all along the way. I plan to keep a journal and take lots of photos when I can. I am going with a friend of mine of Lebanese heritage. She is a freelance writer and she has already warned me – this journey may become a book! Two friends from two vastly different (and often opposing) cultures traveling together. What could be better! I have much to look forward to and I am feeling very blessed.
