To My New "Family" at Etz Chaim,
It is with great excitement that I have accepted the job to become Etz Chaim's new head rabbi. Since our weekend visit at TEC last month, my family and I have not stopped talking about the community's warmth, the incredible ECE and religious school, and the great opportunity that lies before us. We are thrilled to be moving back home to start our lives in Thousand Oaks. I have been in touch with Hazzan Pablo, Rabbi Spiegel, and congregation president Jeff Solomon, among others, to ensure that the transition for the shul is smooth, and am heartened at the generosity with their time.
I look forward to seeing you all in the near future as the next chapter in our lives begins.
