Rabbi Jeffrey C. Brown (right), the new spiritual leader of Scarsdale Synagogue Temples Tremont and Emanu-El, recently joined forces with Rabbi Emeritus Stephen A. Klein to plant a tree in the congregational garden, symbolizing this month’s official transition of leadership at this 500-family Reform Jewish congregation. Rabbi Brown came to Scarsdale Synagogue following seven years as an associate rabbi at Temple Solel in the San Diego suburb of Cardiff, CA. Rabbi Klein has become Scarsdale Synagogue’s first Rabbi Emeritus, continuing his 31-year relationship.
Incoming Congregational President Ellen Baken, said: “We are delighted that Rabbi Brown is now on board and poised to further strengthen and grow our Synagogue. We are confident he will bring innovation and excitement to our congregation, honoring our past achievements, and serving member families and the broader Jewish and Westchester communities with continued involvement and effectiveness.”
