Jessica Sheinman of Wilton is among the members planning a series of 12 meet and greet open houses for Congregation Beth El Norwalk to welcome its first female rabbi in its 80-year history.
The gatherings will take place at the homes of members throughout lower Fairfield County. Rabbi Ita Paskind will be on hand to introduce herself to current congregants and   non-members alike.
The open houses are free and open to the public by invitation only. For information on attending the coffees or to obtain High Holiday tickets, call Beth El Norwalk directly at 203-838-2710 or email office@congbethel.org.
