Not goodbye, rabbi

Not goodbye, rabbi

In a little over a month, Rabbi Neal Borovitz will be stepping down as rabbi of Temple Avodat Shalom in River Edge. For many years, Borovitz has been a tireless worker for the benefit of our entire community. He has unstintingly engaged in interfaith work, interstream bridge building, social causes, and communal needs, most recently as the current chair of the Jewish Community Relations Council of the Jewish Federation of Northern New Jersey.

His active involvement is irreplaceable. His powerful voice is matchless.

While he is retiring from the pulpit and planning to spend much time amidst the natural beauty of the Berkshires, we hope that he continues to be involved and that his voice continues to be heard, and that this inspiring leader continues to help guide us, the Jewish community of northern New Jersey, toward a better tomorrow, just as he has helped make today better for us all.
