Rabbi Safman Farewell Weekend

Congregation Beth El invites the community to join them in bidding farewell to Rabbi Rachel Safman on the weekend of Saturday and Sunday, June 13 & 14, 2020.

Congregation Beth El would like to send Rabbi Safman off with fond memories as we honor her on her last Shabbat morning service on Saturday, June 13 at 10:00 a.m. via Zoom.

The following day, on Sunday, June 14, 4:00-6:00 p.m., a farewell celebration will take place, also via Zoom, including personal odes to the rabbi celebrating her time here in New London.

If you would like to participate, be it by sharing a story, poem, song or skit, or by roasting the rabbi, please contact the Beth El office at 860-442-0418 or by emailing to no later than Monday, June 8th. Groups can work together, but only one person can speak/sing at a time on Zoom.) Additionally, if you have a special memory or photo that you would like to have included in a book of memories which is being made for the rabbi, please send them to the Beth El office. Please keep written memories brief (50 words maximum). Donations to the Rabbi’s Discretionary Fund in honor of Rabbi Safman are gladly accepted, but not required.

Please join us in gratitude as we wish our beloved rabbi a future filled with mazel!
