From left, Sinai’s associate managing director Arielle Greenbaum Saposh, managing director Sam Fishman, dean Rabbi Dr. Yisrael Rothwachs, development director Pam Ennis, and communications director Abigail Hepner Gross stand with Holy Name’s CEO Michael Maron, who is second from right. They’re all at the hospital’s annual Sukkot Lunch and Learn, in its sukkah, which flooding from Ida moved to the employee cafeteria patio. Mr. Maron drew on writing by Rabbi Jonathan Sacks to talk about coming together in crisis. Many members of Holy Name’s staff — not all of them Jewish — come to the lunch, and they invite members of partner agencies to join them. (Jeff Rhode)
