Leah Gerber has a familiar name… it feels like we have always been fans of her father Scott as a performer of Yiddish music. We are so fortunate that his daughter Leah is using her beautiful voice and guitar to bring a special beauty and spirituality to prayer at Beth Ami.
In her own words:
“I’m honored to have brought “Sing in Shabbat” to Congregation Beth Ami on a regular basis, be it on Zoom or in person. With technology, we can now touch so many more lives. Through Zoom, people who cannot physically attend in-person, have the opportunity to to be involved in the community. Technology allows us to widen our demographics across the board.
Warmth, inclusivity, and accessibility are essential for growing and maintaining community. Attracting diverse groups of people of all ages from various cultural backgrounds, and with all levels of familiarity with Jewish life, is very dear to my heart.”
