The Jewish faith is steeped in tradition, and that goes for the local Jewish community as well.  To find out about some of their traditions I spoke with Rabbi Barbara Block of Temple Israel near Rogersville.

Barbara Block says she’s been warmly welcomed by everyone in the community. KSMU’s Bailey Wiles sat down with the new Rabbi amid the High Holy Days to learn more about her journey to the region.

Rabbi Barbara Block says that as a reform Jew, she believes that one can change certain aspects of Jewish traditions, but at its core is a concern for humanity.
