Temple Sinai members received this e-blast today:
Dear Fellow Congregants,
Rabbi Eleanor Steinman has enjoyed being part of our Temple family for the last three years; however, she would like to strengthen her commitment to social action and social justice by working in the not-for-profit sector. On June 30, 2011, Rabbi Steinman will be ending her service at Temple Sinai to pursue her goals.
Rabbi Steinman’s commitment to social action initiatives has helped us to grow community-based programs like Pri Adamah and has allowed her to work toward social change while strengthening our Jewish community and Jewish values. We are happy to have shared this opportunity with her.
In her own words: “Thank you for the kindness that Temple has shown me. You have welcomed me to a new city, allowed me to learn and grow, and given me a place to call home. I am grateful for the opportunities that Temple has given me, including becoming a Balfour Brickner Rabbinic Fellow.”
I hope that you will join me in wishing Rabbi Steinman well in her future endeavours. In the spring, the congregation will gather to honour Rabbi Steinman for her contributions to our congregation. Please watch your E-Vents for a date and time.

Mazel Tov and Best Wishes as you embark on the next chapter of what has already been an amazing career of service to the community.
Very sorry to learn of your departure. Was just getting to know you, your wit and your special sense of humor. You will be missed in the Sanctuary and at the SAC meetings.
That being said, I wish you a heartfelt Mazel Tov and all the best in your new endeavours!!!
