Evening of Tribute & Appreciation for Rabbi Steinmetz

On Monday, October 26, 2015, we gathered at TBDJ in order to pay tribute to Rabbi Chaim & Lisa Steinmetz, ahead of their departure to New York. Over 600 people were in attendance, as multiple tributes reflected the impact Rabbi Steinmetz had on the community over the last 20 years. TBDJ member Mike Cohen covered the special event: please see his write-up.
