Service Melodies with Gordon Dankner

headshot of Gordy DanknerIn 2016 we lost our much cherished, Gordon Dankner (better known by his students as ‘Mr. D’). Gordy taught in our Hebrew School for 34 years and prepared almost all of our students for their Bar/Bat Mitzvahs. This was not an easy task but he was loved by his students and he inspired them as they moved into adulthood and embraced Jewish practice.

We are fortunate to have some audio files of Mr. D’s tutorial sessions:
