July 2022

Over BChavana’s life, we enjoyed considerable success. We measured it spiritually: the engagement of our members in fashioning a meaningful Jewish life.  

It is with mixed feelings, that I share with you that BChavana has “sunset”. There are feelings of both sadness and joy: the sadness that comes with the end and loss of something wonderful; and joy at the many lives we touched and the unique ways in which we did so. 

I will continue weekly Torah learning as a subscription-based class. If you’re interested in joining, please let me know at the below email address. Additionally, I hope to turn my attention to writing projects that I’ve considered for several years. 

Finally, I am available for counseling, conversation, and life-cycle ceremonies. You can reach me at the email address below.

I thank all of you.   The spiritual energy and enthusiasm that you brought meant, and will continue to mean, so much to me.  

I wish you all the best in your continued life journey.
