Rabbi Announcement!

by Joel Brown, January 20, 2015

Fellow Solelniks,

Almost two years ago, Solel began preparing for the retirement of our founding Rabbi by forming a Transition Team. This dedicated group of volunteers has been working tirelessly ever since to help us all reflect on what has always made Solel so special to us and to plan for the renewal and reinvigoration of our Jewish community for the future. Solel has always been our warm, welcoming, caring Jewish home and together we will build upon this proud foundation for our children and for generations to come.

I am delighted to announce that we have reached a major milestone on our journey to realizing our future vision for Solel. It is my honour to introduce to you, Solel’s next spiritual leader and teacher, Rabbi Audrey Pollack.

Rabbi Pollack is a wonderful, caring, thoughtful and compassionate person who demonstrates all of the best characteristics of a Solelnik. She is a gifted teacher, a talented musician and singer, a noted scholar and a mensch. She brings with her some 20 years of experience in the rabbinate.

Together with her husband Phil Subeck, and her three children Seth, Gil, and Rachel, Rabbi Pollack will begin serving as our Rabbi officially on July 1, 2015.

Between now and then, there is a lot to do. Our Transition Team will continue working to make Rabbi Pollack’s move to Mississauga and Solel as smooth as possible. I know that you are eager to meet Rabbi Pollack. We will find as many opportunities as we can to help every Solelnik get to know her and her family a little better over the coming months. A good place to start is with the accompanying letter, in which Rabbi Pollack introduces herself and her family.

This is a very exciting time to be a Solelnik. We are about to embark on Solel’s next great chapter. With the leadership of Rabbi Pollack, our Jewish home will continue to grow and prosper. We can all look forward to sharing this journey together.

Shalom u’vracha,

Joel Brown
