As Thanksgiving approaches, I want to take a moment to publicly express my gratitude for a few things that bless my life every day.
As a rabbi: I am thankful for the boundless dedication of our membership and our lay leadership. It is because of what each of you bring to this place that makes it so special.
I am thankful that we have been blessed with such an amazing staff in the office, in our worship settings and in our religious school. Everything we do here is shaped by the love and devotion they bring to their work and to the mission of our community.
As a father: I am thankful that for the joys that come with raising four wonderful children, and for the blessings that come with striving to meet the responsibilities of fatherhood.
As a husband: I am blessed with a partner in life who shares my dreams and my values. Beckye’s boundless support is sometimes taken for granted, but I am thankful to my core for everything she does.
We all have so much for which to be thankful. As we prepare for this wonderful American Holiday, it is my hope that an abundance of good things in our lives will bless us all.
