Jerry emails: I stumbled accross your website and wanted to ask you about synagogues. I grew up in LA, but just moved back after living 13 years in New York. Do any of the Reform or other synagogues still use organ/chior on Friday night/Sat am. I know that Sinai temple does on most saturday mornings. I identify with my Hungarian/Central European traditions (my late grandfather was a Neologue/Conservative rabbi in Hungary). In New York, there were places to go, but in LA, most of the Reform synagogues replaced their service with the new contempary type, which is not to my liking.
