A Time for Engagement

By this time next week, our dear Rabbi will G-d willing, wed his bride – an amazing young woman and welcome addition to our shul family.

Since accepting his pulpit post a few years back– the first of his career – our congregants have witnessed the evolution and growth of his rabbinical gifts—as spiritual teacher, advisor and orator.  A respect and admiration for his talent and potential exists, along with sincere appreciation for the personal connections he’s made with so many of us.

The timing of this approaching milestone event is especially sweet, with the High Holidays upon us.  As we reflect over the past year, a renewed and stronger commitment to our faith can be felt during Shabbos services, social hall events and beyond the synagogue doors in everyday lives.

Good luck and best wishes to our Rabbi Daniel Vinik and Rachel Fleischer.  Enjoy your wedding in Eretz Israel.  With G-ds help, we look forward to welcoming you back and working together toward continued spiritual growth in the New Year.
