RECORDING THE CLOSE OF AN ERAUnion Temple Farewell Gala for Rabbi Linda Henry Goodman
Linda Henry Goodman is a trailblazer following in the steps of the first confirmed female rabbi Sally Priesand. Rabbi Goodman was the first female rabbi at Union Temple, the oldest Reform Jewish congregation in Brooklyn, and she become the first female President of the New York Board of Rabbis.
After 20+ years at Union Temple, Rabbi Goodman chose to retire. We captured the celebratory gala aptly named Cantors in Concert, featuring noted musicians and cantors who worked with and under Rabbi Goodman – also a classically trained musician –throughout her career.
