I would like to offer my thanks to all the wonderful people who made our High Holy days so memorable and special. I know the huge effort involved in preparation and delivery of the services – from service leaders to shammashim to sanctuary decorators to polishers of silver to potluck lunch and break fast co-ordinators, to shofar blowers, to everyone else who helped in one way or another and not least of all to my Ritual Committee who work tirelessly day-in day-out.
And of course the professionalism and spiritual guidance of Rabbi Peter Knobel was a special treat for us. Thank you Board of Management for your efforts and wisdom in bringing us Peter Knobel to lead and inspire us at this time. It was much appreciated
Kol hakavod everyone, and thank you
Congratulations to you and the Board on getting Rabbi Knobel over to visit Beth Shalom. What a coup! Reform Judaism doesn’t go in for Chief Rabbis but if it did, Rabbi Knobel would be IT! Without doubt he is a worthy successor to Gunther Plaut and having him here is equivalent to AHC getting Rabbi Lord Jakobovits (if he was still alive) or Lord Sachs at Greys Ave for a month or two. Beth Shalom must be the envy of Reform congregations round the world.
