Thank You, Leah!

Last Sunday, some of our long-standing Hebrew School teachers, helpers and Rabbi Harry gathered on Zoom to watch as a parcel was delivered, and to say thank you to our dear Leah Levi for her 30 years of dedicated and loving leadership of the Congregation Emanu-El Hebrew School.

Leah knew something was happening—we had to make sure she’d be at home—but she had no idea what. Her face, as she unwrapped the parcel, read the words of the dedication and saw Noga’s beautiful calligraphy, was alive with delight.  It was evident she was deeply moved.

Even though we could not hug her as we longed to do, we had the pleasure of seeing the love and appreciation in her eyes. Thank you, Leah, for all you have given us.
