Help Us Honor Rabbi Gordon!
Friday, June 2, 2017
Shabbat Service at 6:30pm followed by a Celebratory Dinner
While we are thrilled for Rabbi Gordon who has been called to serve as the Senior Rabbi of the Bolton Street Synagogue in Baltimore, MD, we are sad to say goodbye. Rabbi Gordon's time with us has been defined by the innumerable special moments he has had with congregants of all ages, from our Nursery School students to our Saturday morning "minyannaires." We have been blessed by his warm and gentle compassion, his enthusiasm for social action, and his dedication to inclusion. Rabbi Gordon has enriched our Jewish lives immeasurably. Please join us as we honor him. Dinner: $40 per adult, $25 per student (grades 3-12). RSVP online to: mysinai.org/honoringrabbigordon or complete the form below and send in with your check payable to Temple Sinai by May 25, 2017.
Help us honor Rabbi Gordon with a Memory Book and Video Montage by sending your submission to the Temple office. Email your submissions to: [email protected] or bring in Memory Book submissions to the Temple office. Deadline for all submissions is May 15, 2017.
