Welcome Rabbi Rabbinowitz
Rabbi Rabbinowitz’s appointment as the shul’s new Rabbi coincided with the shul’s appeal for aid for the victims of an earthquake that had just taken place in Israel.
Unfortunately, on his first Shabbat, the center page of the shul’s bulletin was accidentally omitted. So members of the congregation read from the bottom of the second page to the top of the last page:
"Welcome to Rabbi Rabbinowitz and his family ... the worst disaster to hit the area in this century. The full extent of the tragedy is not yet known."
