I am profoundly excited to be joining the Temple Beth Or community as your next rabbi. I have been overwhelmed by the warm and enthusiastic welcome I have received. I am awed and inspired by what happens at Temple every day, by the terrific staff and lay leadership, and I can’t wait to begin playing my part in building our sacred community. I look forward to meeting and getting to know everyone soon; I hope we’ll reach out to each other to share ideas for how I can best serve this congregation and bring Jewish meaning and joy to you and your family.
As my wife, Ali, and I arrive with our new daughter, Lorry, we are so grateful to have found an engaged, kind, and thoughtful community with whom to share our lives. May this new chapter in the life of Temple Beth Or bring enormous blessings to us, our families, and the larger world. I have every confidence that it will.
