Highlight of My Life!

OK, let's be honest--almost everything I am doing in Israel is a highlight of my life. But this one was special.

I just played the Jerusalem Center organ. Myself. With pedals and everything.

Granted, it was only Sweet Hour of Prayer in good old C Major, but I did it--one of the top hopes and dreams on my Israel bucket list.

Play one of the most beautiful organs in the world--check.


  1. Congratulations Rachel! Was anyone in there to hear you - or did you get a quiet lucky moment by yourself? I hope you get more opportunities to play!
    love, mom

  2. I was actually having a group lesson with the oraginst here, Brother Squires. He is an amazing musician--he has played at the Conference Center and Tabernacle several times. Katie and Annie were there, and four other girls. We all got to play and learn some organ playing technique. I actually did a lot better than I thought I would, and Brother Squires offered to teach us again soon. I feel so lucky. :)
