Her own zest and joy in being Jewish inspire us, as she guides us into a more extensive and deeper knowledge of our Jewish heritage.

For the Reform congregation in the area, Temple Sholom of Floral Park, which will install a new spiritual leader, Cantor Josee Wolff, next week, adaptation means selling off its oversized edifice and building a smaller "more economically feasible" synagogue.
Cantor Wolff, who has been leading services there since October, said attendance at services has increased since she began. She said she brings to the congregation new energy and a "strong musical presence" that has inspired members. And as a teacher at Hebrew Union College, Wolff said she "brings a connection of our movement" to the congregation. Cantor Josee Wolff
