A Passover Message from Rabbi Julia Gris

Rabbi Julia Gris, the spiritual leader of Shirat Ha-Yam (The Song of the Sea), a progressive synagogue in Odessa, is the only female rabbi in Ukraine. The rabbi is a personal friend of Cantors Elena and Sergei Schwartz.

Rabbi Gris, her 19-year-old daughter, and two cats, walked 20 miles lugging suitcases, to make it safely to Warsaw, Poland. Knowing the life they knew in Odessa was gone, the rabbi's heart overflowed with gratitude to God when in Warsaw she reunited with 34 members of her congregation.

Together, she and her congregants made the decision to evacuate and, for at least the time being, stay together in one place as a temple family. Rabbi Gris organized the evacuation, found housing for her congregants in Germany, and continues to provide support, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Rabbi Gris and her daughter were able to evacuate thanks to the generosity of the members of our Temple Sinai community.

A Passover Song from Cantors Elena & Sergei Schwartz

The word seder means order. Traditionally, we follow a set of rituals known as the order of the seder. This list serves as a set of "landmarks" for the evening, that help us find our place in the haggadah.

In solidarity with the people of Ukraine who are fighting for their freedom, Cantors Elena and Sergei Schwartz adapted the melody of one of the most popular Ukrainian songs, Zvite Teren (The Blackthorn is Blossoming), to the order of the seder.
