Message from Cantor Alicia Stillman

Welcome to Temple Judea!

We are surrounded by blessings: new friends, new faces, new simchas, and a new Torah. I, myself, feel blessed to begin my seventh year serving the Temple Judea family.

As you come to our community--to pray with us, to learn with us, to celebrate a holiday or a special occasion--look at the faces of those around you. Some are new; some are wonderfully familiar. We are a family that wants to know you and wants to be a part of your life.  Come share it with us…and as we say on Shabbat-- if you don't have the words, just sing it; and if you still can't find the words, sing it even louder! I guarantee there will be someone sitting next to you to sing along.

I look forward to sharing Shabbat with you!

Cantor Alicia
