It’s 37 and out at Bushey

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY -

THE UNITED Syn­a­gogue’s longest­serv­ing rabbi with a sin­gle com­mu­nity, Bushey’s Meir Salas­nik, will stand down next au­tumn af­ter 37 years to make aliyah.

Rabbi Salas­nik in­formed the com­mu­nity of his plans dur­ing a fes­ti­val ser­vice, say­ing that he and his wife, Judy, had “built great friend­ships and have shared our happy, and less happy times, and have been able to bring up our four chil­dren within the warm and in­clu­sive com­mu­nity that we have had the priv­i­lege of serv­ing”.

Shul chair Stephen Ros­ton said that “this year will be one of cel­e­bra­tion to say good­bye to the best rabbi in the US”.
