“It’s my first day ‘on the job’ as Temple Emanu-El’s spiritual leader, and I’m sitting in Boston Logan Airport practicing my leyning for Pinchas and waiting to catch a flight to San Diego for two days of immigration rights advocacy and learning with Mijente and HIAS. I’m so grateful for T’ruah’s organization of this trip (here’s looking at you, Rabbi Salem Pearce, Rab`18) and for the fellowship that makes it possible, and I’m eager to get my feet on the ground.”

(Cantor Vera Broekhuysen, Can’16, at Boston’s Logan airport.)
