Lake Norman Jewish Congregation

This weekend we were in Davidson, NC just north of Charlotte for an amazing Shabbat with the Lake Norman Jewish Congregation, a progressive Reform community that invited us to film some great interviews with their volunteers and congregants. We enjoyed an amazing concert by Israeli world jazz musician Amir Gwirtzman (who we hope to get an interview with for PunkTorah). It was also a special treat as rabbi Michael Shields and his lovely bride-to-be Jacqui were honored for their upcoming wedding.

Pictures and video coming soon, but we had such a great time that we couldn’t help but blog about it!

Over and out,

-Patrick and Anna
