He is amazing. He understands the tone of the Selichot musical program - contemplative, introspective, meditative, inspirational.  We are so fortunate to have this great violinist play during our Selichot program.
       - Rabbi Min Kantrowitz

Music is one of the ways with which we help set the mood for the
High Holy Days. We are honored that David Felberg will be sharing
a special musical program with us to help us all get in a special mood
for the High Holy Days.
