My wife and I live in Connecticut and visit Coastal Georgia a few times a year. We previously attended services haphazardly at Temple Beth Tefilloh in Brunswick over the years. When Rabbi Rachael came, the synagogue became alive with people and ruach. We now attend every Rosh Hashanah and even had Rabbi Rachael renew our wedding vows for our 35th anniversary last year. She brings a wonderful personality and excitement to the community. She is truly a rabbi “of the people.” Her services are inspiring and her Torah study on Shabbat mornings is spiritual and fun. She has created a community where only a shadow of one existed before. She’s a rabbinic delight. She embodies what an inspirational clergy person should be.
