A Message of Welcome from Hazzan/Cantor Lichterman:

Cantor Lichterman

It is my honor and privilege to have you visit with us. I genuinely hope you find our synagogue, its services and programs meaningful, and spiritually motivating.

At B’nai Israel, we pride ourselves as a hospitable and warm congregation, which I have made a benchmark of my ministry here as Hazzan/Cantor. In fact even the very architecture of our round, modern, light-filled sanctuary with central bimah/podium is designed to reflect this image.

I trust you have been made to feel welcome during your visit, and to that end kindly let us know how we can be of further service to you. If you are attending the kiddush/meal after services, please introduce yourselves to us so we can get to know you better.

If you are making the Toledo area your home, I extend to you the warmest invitation to make our Congregation an important and integral part of your life.

Again, beruchim haba’im – welcome!

Hazzan/Cantor Ivor Yitzchak Lichterman
