Latvia Opera House

Today we traveled to Riga Latvia. Upon our arrival, we had a tour of the Latvia Opera House. While there, one of the artists gave us a concert of four beautiful arias. Here is a portion of one of them.

Enjoy!

Synagogue in St Petersburg

Hi.  We visited the Synagogue in St Petersburg and we were treated to a wonderful discussion with the Cantor.  Since there is no sundown, morning and nighttime services are determined kind of arbitrarily and havdalah (the end of Shabbat) is held at 130a!

We were in the Wedding Chapel, with its beautiful decorations and Chuppah when the Cantor sang for us to demonstrate the wonderful acoustics.  Click the video below to listen

 

Stalin’s Bunker

Debbie wrote about our visit to the War Room in Stalin’s Bunker here.  I took a video of our group around the table so you can get a sense for how it looked.
