Rabbi Deborah Bronstein, the Rabbi Emerita of Congregation Har HaShem, has been a dynamic force in our community and congregation. A few years ago, Rabbi Bronstein was to receive her Doctor of Divinity degree, honoris causa, from the Hebrew Union College — Jewish Institute of Religion after serving as a rabbi for 25 years. Due to her health concerns at the time, she was unable to join her classmates to receive the degree.
It is time to make up for that absence. We are delighted to announce that Rabbi Aaron Panken, PhD, President of HUC-JIR, will be joining us for services Friday, March 10, to award Rabbi Bronstein her honorary doctorate.
We are grateful to the Women of Har HaShem to help organize the oneg and dinner relating to this Shabbat experience.
ONEG will be at 5:15pm in the Social Hall
SERVICES will be at 6pm in the Sanctuary
DINNER (RSVP required) will be immediately following services
