Farewell Rabbi Karol

Temple Beth-El wishes our Rabbi Emeritus Larry Karol and Rhonda Karol all the best in Rabbi’s retirement, and are glad it’s not yet completely good-bye. Thank you for all you’ve done for us.

Every milestone in life gives us a new opportunity to take note of who we are and where we are at any given moment, and where we want to be in the future. Marking a special occasion in any way makes that moment KADOSH, sacred, reminding us that embodied in our celebrations is an admission that we can continue to learn and grow along our life’s journey. May we continue together on this path of “becoming” in unity and hope!

from Rabbi Karol’s, WORDS OF TORAH – Parashat Korach – June 26-27, 2020
