Celebrating 40 Years
In celebration of Rabbi Posner’s 40 years of service to Temple Emanu-El, several events were planned in 2012 and 2013 to honor him.
The first was a worship service and oneg on November 9, 2012, at which Rabbi Posner was joined on the Main Sanctuary bimah by Temple President John H. Streicker, Mayor Michael Bloomberg and HUC-JIR President David Ellenson. A capacity crowd of 2,000 members of our extended Emanu-El community filled the Main Sanctuary.
