Album Notes
Innovative spiritual leader, Rabbi Leonard has devoted decades to teaching children in Hawaii; for many years she taught Jewish studies on base in Pearl Harbor at the Aloha Jewish Chapel, for a few years at Bet Sefer HaKeshet, a Conservative school, at Temple Emanuel's School of Jewish Studies and it's pre-school and after school programs of Gan Yerushalayim where she served as Head Teacher. Rabbi was trained in music at The New England Conservatory in Boston and Simmons College where she received her degree in Early Childhood Education and Mass, certification for grades K-8; she has held positions at The Jewish Community Center of Brighton, Brookline, Newton introducing innovative after school programs and The Harvard-Radcliffe Child Care Center. She has homeschooled both her sons and is a strong proponent of homeschooling and freedom in independent education. She has taught many a child and adult in Hawaii in her home trope and Hebrew chanting and of the beauty inherent in the light of Jewish spirituality.
Rabbi's first language was Yiddish and she has ever striven to preserve it , writing original tunes in the mameloshn and singing the classics.
When Myron, son of Samuel Goldfarb came through the doors of her tearoom with his extraordinary family it was truly besheret and this story shall be told in the future on album notes to come.
