There was room for many more faithful in the pews, but parking almost ran out. Car pooling more religious people might work for next year. Cantor Schectman inspired us with her voice.

Always wonderful to see members of the community praying together. We saw many friends, enjoyed the choir, were inspired by the selections of thanksgiving. There certainly was plenty more room for more people. If you didn't attend, you missed something very inspirational. And we all need that now and again. Susan Clark
