I can honestly say that I have never, in my years in the rabbinate, seen anyone get a congregation up, dancing and singing the way Doni did. Without exaggeration, people of all ages were up and moving and participating. The ruach was amazing and my congregation loved it! And Doni works very well with clergy, insisting on leading the service with the Cantor and me, just another way she makes the service truly inclusive.
