Cantors Avi Albrecht and Yaakov Motzen will join up for a Shabbat Chazzanut, February 7 – 8, at the Palm Beach Synagogue in Palm Beach. The two have appeared together many times, delighting audiences with a selection of cantorial and Jewish music. This time, the cantors will perform the Sabbath services, including the Friday night Kabbalat Shabbat and the Shabbat morning davening.

Avi Albrecht has appeared in almost every major city in North America, Israel and Europe and enjoys standing ovations wherever he performs. His repertoire is extensive and varied, and his rich baritone is equally suited to performing Broadway favorites, Yiddish standards, and Italian arias as well as his inspirational cantorial singing. He has appeared with major symphony orchestras including the Baltimore Symphony, Prague Symphony Orchestra, Jerusalem Symphony and the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra.

Albrecht is cantor at the Beth Tfiloh Congregation in Baltimore, the largest Modern Orthodox synagogue in America, and serves on the board of directors of American Friends of Meir Panim.

Yaakov Motzen of The Shul of Bal Harbour is a native of Tel Aviv and represents the fifth generation of a family of cantors. He held the position of chief cantor in Givatayim, Haifa, and Ramat Gan, and sang on Kol Yisrael radio and television. He is a former vice president of Nechala, an organization dedicated to entertaining wounded soldiers. He has performed in concert in many parts of the world – including Australia, South Africa, England, Israel and many cities in North America – and has released over a dozen recordings of liturgical and chassidic music.

Meir Panim works to alleviate the harmful effects of poverty on thousands of men, women and children across Israel through a range of food and social service programs aimed at helping the needy with dignity and respect, including free restaurants, meals-on-wheels, children’s meal programs, prepaid food card distribution, vocational training and after-school youth clubs.

Yom Tov is about spending time with your family. And while for some families the big once-in-a-lifetime experience is great, for others something low key is the way to go.

A fascinating glimpse into the rich complexity of medieval Jewish life and its contemporary relevance had intriguingly emerged.

Dear Dr. Yael:

My heart is breaking; my husband’s friend has gotten divorced. While this type of situation is always sad, here I do believe it could have been avoided.

Now all the pain, fear and struggle were over and they were home. Yuli was safe and free, a hero returned to his land and people.

While it would seem from his question that he is being chuzpadik and dismissive, I wonder if its possible, if just maybe, he is a struggling, confused neshama who actually wants to come back to the fold.

I agree with the letter writer that a shadchan should respectfully and graciously accept a negative response to a shidduch offer.

Alternative assessments are an extremely important part of understanding what students know beyond the scope of tests and quizzes.
