Over the past two plus years, I have benefitted greatly from knowing Cantor Heather Batchelor through her service at Congregation Dorshei Emet. Much more than the beauty of her voice has been the Jewish knowledge and ruach that she brings to all. I especially enjoyed the Kabbalat Shabbat experiences at her home with her family and a unique group of people. Her role in bringing three outstanding Shabbat Shira concerts to our shul was critical. I am appreciative of all she has brought to our community and me.
