Rabbi Samuel M. Cohon
My friends, it is a special honor to speak about the manifold contributions that Dr. Steve and Ruth Dickstein have made to Temple Emanu-El, and to our entire community. Just listing their many, many programs, projects, and great works requires a good deal of time.
But in order to do this properly, to acknowledge the remarkable depth and breadth of their giving to our historic temple and to this community, it is necessary to understand the true nature of avodah, of sacred service.
