Well, dear readers, I'm coming home. Anybody know of a cantorial soloist/music director job that's open?
In the end, all of the prospects one by one turned to dust, and it's time for me to come back to the States and try to find a congregation to serve. My skill set is enriched by my improved Hebrew, experience living as an Israeli, and all the new melodies and songs I have learned.
I loved living here, so much. But I couldn't build a life, or make a living. And it's too hard to be alone.
My lease is up in March, so I'll be back by the middle of the month, with luck (though I haven't had much luck lately...)
And if you hear of a job, please keep me in mind!
