Our annual Christmas Choir Concert & Sing-along was a success!
What a wonderful day full of song and friendship. As Susan Kissinger, our volunteer Choir Director, explained: The title of our program this year is “Let There Be Peace on Earth and Let It Begin With Me!” which is not only a song title, but it also sums up the spirit of the songs chosen for the concert. Susan didn’t begin rehearsals with a specific song list in mind, but instead allowed the ladies of Mary Ryder Home to pick and practice songs that they enjoyed and that lifted their spirits.
Peace and joy were brought together that Saturday afternoon with the voices of our ladies, the audience, and the youth of CRC Synagoge. Led by Rabbi Randy a group of boys and girls from the Synagoge performed a Hanuka song for all. A very special thanks to Rabbi Randy, his group, and all the volunteers of the day who helped set up the chairs and serve refreshments afterwards. And thank you to all who joined us in to watch and to sing! We’re so glad you’re part of our family this holiday season!
