Temple Beth Tikvah celebrated the installation of Rabbi Brian Beal during a weekend celebration earlier this month. Special guests included Rabbi Bennett Miller of Temple Anshe Emeth in New Brunswick, who is Rabbi Beal’s mentor; Wayne Mayor Chris and Deneen Vergano; and Wayne Councilwoman Fran Ritter. The program included Saturday morning Torah study, a kiddish luncheon, dinner, activities, an ice cream truck, music, and a Havdalah service.
Rabbi Beal’s family was also there, including his wife, Naomi Adler, the CEO of Hadassah, and their sons, Ari, Ben, and Joshua.
