Cantor Chomsky (Jack),
Can it really be 30 years since you became our Hazzan.  It was in that year that my family and I joined Tifereth Israel and I first heard your voice resonating through the sanctuary.  I also became aware that you were starting an adult Bar/Bat Mitzvah class.  Not having much in the way of Jewish knowledge, I jumped at the chance to join since my son was soon to become a Bar Mitzvah and I wasn't sure what that meant.  It is now 30 years later and I can't believe what I have accomplished due to your encouragement, patience, teaching, and especially your friendship.  I am so proud to call you my FRIEND.  You have opened so many doors into my Jewish heritage.  I owe you so much more than words can adequately express.  You are and always will be a very special person in my life.  And though it doesn't seem like enough, THANK YOU!
Jackie and Jerry Benis

Susie and Carl Seletz
We first met thirteen years ago on a cold icy day and both of us have watched each other grow over the years.  I became a man this year with your guidance and you were there for me every step of the way at my Bar Mitzvah.  I have heard you touched many lives over your past 30 years at the synagogue and I wish I could have been there to be part of all the special occasions and learned from your work with the Columbus Community--especially B.R.E.A.D.  You congratulated me on my special occasion and I want to offer you a big Mazel Tov.  I expect you to be around to prepare my two children for their Bar or Bat Mitzvah.  I know our professional relationship is just beginning..., I understand you keep a full schedule, but if you want to relax with soccer or tennis lessons, I am willing to work with you; even though, I know it might be challenging.  Let's text...
