This coming Shabbat, we will be honoring our beloved Rabbi Kassorla with a special tribute Kiddush. Rabbi, who will be ending his tenure at Congregation Or Ve’Shalom at the end of this month, has meant so much to our congregation, and I hope that everyone in our community will be able to join us in celebration.

Rabbi Kassorla has brought such honor, kindness and intellect to Or Ve’Shalom, with his tremendous wealth of knowledge, his insightful sermons, and his continuous acts of chessed and tzedakah. Rabbi has been a cherished leader, teacher and friend to so many, and no gesture would ever be enough to truly thank him for all that he has given. I hope that you and your family will join me in celebrating Rabbi Kassorla and his contributions, and ensure that he knows how his rabbinic leadership has enriched our lives at OVS. Please join us for services and a tribute Kiddush on Saturday, December 14th.

I would also like to remind our members and friends in the community to please submit letters and photos, for Rabbi Kassorla’s memory book. All of the materials we receive will be presented to Rabbi Kassorla and his family as a memento of his 15 years of leadership at OVS. Please submit all materials – either by e-mail to me at or by mail to the OVS office (attn: memory book) – by the end of December.

Finally, this Sunday we will be holding our annual General Membership meeting. The board will be presenting an overview of current business, as well as electing the incoming board for 2020. Please try your best to attend.

I look forward to seeing you this weekend.
