People seek out both emotional and physical healing at different times in their lives for a variety of reasons. This could be related to an illness, loss of a loved one, caregiver fatigue, major life transitions or societal fears and concerns faced daily. Organized and led by Jodi Rozental, the Healing Service includes spiritual and secular songs, prayers, and inspirational readings, all performed by a rotation of talented singers and instrumentalists from various schools and organizations in Miami. These culturally diverse performers range in age and come from New World School of the Arts, University of Miami School of Music, Miami Children’s Theatre Choir, Florida Grand Opera and Temple Judea’s Choir. Held quarterly on Tuesdays at 7pm, the next Healing Service will be November 27, 2018.
Now celebrating 70 years of Jewish Learning and Living in Coral Gables, Temple Judea is one of the largest Reform synagogues in Miami with approximately 600 member families.
