FM #330 Conversation with Rabbi Tom - 8/11/20 (audio)

 FM #330 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 330 in the series. 

This session shares my conversation with Rabbi Tom Alpert of Temple Etz Chaim here in Franklin. Our conversation was conducted via conference bridge to adhere to the ‘social distancing’ requirements of this pandemic period.


In this introductory conversation, I learn from Rabbi Tom of the history of the Temple and of his different path to this role. Did you know Rabbi Tom was a lawyer? Along the way, we talk of the shift from in person to virtual during this pandemic and yet still being present in spirit and community. I found the conversation easy going, informative and insightful. I hope you do too.


The recording runs just about 28 minutes, so let’s listen to my conversation with Rabbi Tom. Audio file = https://www.hipcast.com/podcast/HW8XL8xK
