Introduce Yourself
What's Your Story?

Hi, I'm Connie Bennett, a long-time member of Temple Emanuel. My Jewish roots are strong. A word or melody transports me back to childhood, sitting on my grandfather's porch swing in Ashtabula, Ohio. He was the town's only rabbi and there we'd be on a lovely Shabbos afternoon discussing his sermons. Professionally, I have moved at rapid speed, teaching school and traveling the world.

Would You Like to Tell Your Story?
We'd love to hear from you! What's your story? Do you have an interesting tale to tell?  Email Idelle Davidson to Introduce Yourself
