You are invited to join Tikvat Israel in honoring and recognizing Cantor Rochelle Helzner on the 36th anniversary of her service to our congregation. To celebrate this “double-chai” anniversary, Tikvat Israel will host a live, online tribute to her.
Our “From the Heart” event will feature performances by local cantors, singers, dancers and musicians, as well as expressions of thanks. Our guest performers will lead us in singing niggunim, uplifting melodies ? some familiar, some new ? that move our hearts and lips.
As you know, Rochelle was a true trailblazer, becoming the first female cantor of a Conservative congregation in the Washington, DC, area when she joined us in 1984. She has been honored and recognized locally and nationally for her contribution to Jewish life and music. She has become a role model for a generation of female cantors who have followed in her footsteps.
