A Message From Rabbi Sydni
On Saturday, January 18, our Jewish community lost a generous, caring mentor in Dr. Ike Muslow. Please remember that one of Judaism's most important commandments is niḥum aveilim, comforting the mourners. That mitzvah can be performed through a phone call, a visit, or even respect of space, when it is requested. You may read Dr. Muslow's obituary here. Zikhrono livrakhah - May his memory be for a blessing.
