Our Beloved Rabbi

I have known Rabbi Debbie for a few years. I connected with her right away. She is my kind of person. She is a " free spirit". A Jewish feminist, my kind of person. Our biggest connection is books.  We would occasionally bump into each other at Barnes at Noble at Market Commons.  When we get together, watch out. We can talk for hours about books.

Rabbi Debbie each year for the last four years has been the guest speaker for our Jewish Grand Strand Reads event. From Alice Hoffman, and the Dove Keeper, to Rav Hisda's Daughter, from Maggie Anton, and finally our favorite read, Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker.

She doesn't ask for compensation for these events. But, does this for the love of reading and sharing her knowledge to others.

Rabbi Debbie doesn't have a pulpit. Instead she teaches at the local university, at Coastal Carolina University. She teaches religious studies. Everyone loves Rabbi Deb.

A few years ago, Rav Deb and I were discussing something about a Jewish community read. Then after that I decided to organize, and she did the talking. What a great combination. The rest is history.

Jewish Grand Strand is very upset when we all learned that Rabbi Deb has become ill. She is a prominent Jewish leader in the Jewish community. We all care so much about her.

We all wish her well, and g-d willing a full recovery. .
