Humans of Hebrew College Sing, Sing, Singapore

By Wendy Linden

Julie Newman

“My heart was in the east . . .as I had the privilege of leading the United Hebrew Congregation of Singapore with Rabbi Nathan Alfred for the Yamim Noraim this year. I was struck anew by how the mindful use of liturgy and melody work to create community, even as I was welcomed by this diverse group of Jews from Egypt, South Africa, Australia, Israel, Singapore, Myanmar, the UK, America and Singapore. In community we came together to hold the gates of our hearts open through the final shofar blast.”

(Julie Newman, cantorial student at the School of Jewish Music at Hebrew College)
