In a most unassuming little shul (synagogue) on Elmwood Avenue, tucked between Pano’s and Mr. Pizza, there’s a feast of another sort to be had – this one for the ears, and yes, the soul.
Dr. Irwin Gelman, Interim Chair of Genetics at Roswell Park Cancer Institute is a guest cantor for Congregation Beth Abraham one Friday out of the month. His upcoming service will be held on January 15th, at 6:30PM. Read more about Dr. Shulman in the Roswell Park Institute Alumni Magazine.
Karen Leeds, a member of Beth Ambaham credits Gelman with a renaissance the synagogue has been experiencing. “Young families and students have begun to attend our services because they are casual, child-friendly and a lot of fun,” Leeds says.
If you are of the faith, or ever simply wondered what goes on inside the tiny building, attending on the 15th would be a good place to start. It’s being billed as a “foot-tapping Shabbat (holy day) tephillot (prayer),” for a “joyful, lively, uplifting service.” See more about the synagogue on Facebook.
