Joshua Skoff

The Park Synagogue | Pepper Pike, Ohio | 55 years old
I have seen rabbis come and go in my 58 years of membership at Park Synagogue. Rabbi Skoff came 25 years ago and has been uplifting and inspiring. Our synagogue has grown to 1,800 families. He knows everyone by name and is very friendly to everyone. The most important thing he has done in my life has been the way he treats intermarriage. My daughters married out of the religion, and he has drawn them and their families to the synagogue. He does that for everyone. They are both members, and my grandchildren have gone to religious school and had bar and bat mitzvahs there. Rabbi Skoff was there for me and my husband as he faced death for seven months. My family has had four generations involved with him. He is a wonderful guy!
