Guest Book & Memories
September 23rd, 2022
For many years, we loved singing in the B'nai Torah choir, as well as in the High Holiday choir, under Sonia's direction. She exposed us to such a rich array of Jewish repertoire. Most memorably, each year after the High Holidays, every single choir member would receive a personal thank-you note in Sonia's exquisite handwriting!
With warm memories,
Jokie Solomon and Rana Matteson
~B'nai Torah choir members, Highland Park, IL
