A note from Rabbi Elyse Goldstein
After twenty wonderful and successful years as Rabbinic Director of Kolel, I would like to share with you that I am moving on. If you are looking for courses or Jewish events you can find them at www.prossermanjcc.com. You can also continue to learn online with http://openbook.kolel.org and you can always access archived material- past parsha writings, holiday materials, past sermons etc.-on this website. However this website will no longer be updated. Thank you for all your interest and support through these amazing and productive years!
If you have any questions about Jewish learning at the Prosserman JCC please contact Karen at firstname.lastname@example.org or 416-638-1881 ext 4255. If you would like to contact me directly you can reach me at email@example.com.
I'll be taking a few months to myself and then together with the Canadian Reform movement I will be starting an exciting new project in the fall of 2012: a downtown Reform congregation! It has been 20 years since I have been a congregational Rabbi and I miss it. I am very excited about going "back to the bima."
In the Talmud, Rabbi Chanina remarked, "I have learned much from my teachers, more from my colleagues, and the most from my students." (Ta'anit 7a) Thank you all for being my students, my colleagues, and my teachers. I feel confident that we will stay in relationship through the next exciting stage.
Rabbi Elyse Goldstein
