9-11 from page 19
Blessings for our country, a hope for
peace and a look to God for support
came in the form of a Sept. 10 musi-

"I sang songs with words that
exactly fit the occasion of a memorial
service," says Cantor David Gutman
of Congregation Beit Kodesh in
Livonia. In a program narrated by
Rabbi Avie Shapiro of the Jewish
Hospice and Chaplaincy Network in
Southfield and accompanied by
pianist Martin Mandelbaum, the
cantor chose his selections to allow
reflection and comfort for those
attending the Cantorial Memorial

us, and `Oseh Shalom' tells how God
shall make peace for us on Earth."
The song the cantor chose to con-
clude the program was an appropri-
ate selection -- Israel's national
anthem, "Hatikvah," meaning "The
