The Los Alamos Jewish Center community welcomes a guest for this year’s High Holiday season, Rabbi Melissa Klein. Klein will not only officiate religious services, but will also lead community events that weave together traditional high holiday values with the theme, “Generation to Generation.”
Longtime Los Alamos rabbi Jack Shlachter was invited to lead services at a synagogue in Vienna, Austria. His acceptance of the invitation prompted the LAJC to engage Klein.
Klein, of Philadelphia, is one of Los Alamos’ own — she was raised in Los Alamos and the Jewish Center was a second home to her.
She offered her first sermon to the community when she was a teenager. During her early 20s, she returned for two summers, and later she co-organized and helped lead High Holidays.
Klein’s parents, Morris and Susan, who plan to join the community for Yom Kippur, lived in Los Alamos from 1969-1999, before moving to Washington, D.C. Morris served as president of the Jewish Center and Susan was an active volunteer, organizing many Ghost Ranch retreats for the community over the years.
