Dear Rabbi Bella, thank you for a fantastic few weeks of High Holy Days. We so appreciate your thoughtful preparation, your intellectual stimulation, your spiritual inspiration, your musical skills, and the great balance of traditional and progressive liturgy. I personally appreciate the passion and compassion you bring to your work and I know others do as well. Thank you!

Dear Rabbi Bella,

Last night was amazing. My heart was so full of the inspiration of your words. I was there last night. I am so happy that I am learning who I am and what my community stands for. I have really never had that before. All I can say is thank you for opening the door to let me walk through.

Bless you Bella
