A thank you note from Rabbi Emerita Axe
Dear Precious Members of Shir Ami,
As I continue to settle Harold and me into our new home and transition to the role of caregiver for him while seeking the services that will increase the quality of life for both of us, it is profoundly comforting to know that our Shir Ami Family is supportive of this very challenging time for us. Thank you thank you thank for the magical service of installation. As those who were there know, I was moved to tears as the past presidents blessed me under the tallit you commissioned for me when I was ordained as a rabbi, and with the presentation of a JNF Certificate representing an orchard of fifteen trees planted in Israel in my honor.
I am so proud of you for all your efforts and devotion in forging a future for Shir Ami. I know that you are in loving and caring hands with Cantor Jill Abramson. She brings a depth of wisdom and compassion to everything she does and I am delighted to pass the torch of leadership to such a worthy successor as I embrace my new role as Rabbi Emerita.
It’s hard to imagine an end to the lazy hazy days of summer, but thinking ahead to the fall holy days, I pray that the New Year 5780 will bring to each of you a year of joy and fulfillment, health and peace.
Blessings from our home to yours –
Rabbi Emerita Axe
