My thanks to all who came to the retirement brunch for me in August, as well as those who wanted to, but came up hard against the registration cap. I apologize that I was unable to get to each table and spend time with everyone who attended. If I did not get to talk with you, please know that I dearly wished to.
I would like to express my gratitude and appreciation to Ann Nathan, who chaired the event, Norm Siegel, who as usual spoke so well, Marsha Silverman and Vic Pearlman and his crew as well as Mundy and Julie. Their efforts resulted in a lovely event.
The brunch was a humbling expression of respect and affection. I will always remember it, and the members of Temple Beth El and the Jewish community of Utica, with fondness.
May you and your loved ones enjoy a new year of health, happiness prosperity and growth in Torah.
