"I was honored by being called to the Bimah at Congregation Beth Israel during Shabbat Services. Here, I am singing the Hebrew blessings before and after the Torah reading. The reason for such an honor was that I graduated from Hebrew College, Newton Centre, MA receiving Master of Arts in Jewish Studies. At the Hebrew College graduation, I also received the Clara M. Silbert Memorial Prize for Excellence in Bible Studies.  I could not have achieved such academic achievements without the support from Congregation Beth Israel." - Steve Bleier
