Rabbi Sydni earned her BA in Music from Swarthmore College and received her ordination and MA in Rabbinic Studies from the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies.

In a normal year, LimmudFest includes a full weekend of services for all denominations in addition to the days of learning. We decided not to offer LimmudFest-specific services this year, but this Havdalah session will be a perfect taste of spirituality in our shortened event. Featuring Rabbis, Cantors, and other Jewish leaders from across the Gulf South, we will come together (virtually) to sing, pray, learn, and kick-off LimmudFest 2021!
