Special Congregational Meeting

Proxy Form Below

Dear Members of Etz Hayim Synagogue,

It is my honor and privilege to introduce Rabbi Peter Levy to the community as our recommendation for the next Rabbi of Etz Hayim Synagogue.

Rabbi Levy comes to us with a wealth of experiences, a vast variety of talents and extensive rabbinical knowledge. As a lifelong Reform Jew, he believes in its broadly inclusive approach to our religion. He has found music and spirituality are meaningful parts of Jewish persona and they are valuable tools for taking a modern approach to the texts and traditions that have sustained our people for millennia.

Rabbi Levy has served as a chaplain, from which he has developed a heightened sense of compassion for the needs of those who face challenges in life. He loves teaching both young and older students. And he draws upon on his roots in the Reform Jewish youth movement in order educate the present and future Jews in the depth and joys of Judaism.

We will hold a special meeting of the Etz Hayim Synagogue membership on Sunday, August 3, 2014 at 9:30 AM to approve Rabbi Levy. You will receive the announcement of the meeting and also a proxy form. Please return the proxy form if you can not be present.

We are delighted to recommend Peter Levy as our new rabbi and are looking forward to a fulfilling, meaningful and spiritually and educationally uplifting New Year 5775.
