With great sadness we announce to the Congregation the passing of Steve Rivers, beloved husband of our Cantorial Soloist Lindi Rivers and father of Sophie Rivers, Talia Rivers (HABSTY President), and Julian Camilo Rivers.
Over the course of a lengthy and debilitating illness Steve remained a regular presence in our community, displaying fortitude and grace. Many congregants reached out to Steve with kindness and support only to discover a true friend and real inspiration for how to live life to its fullest.
May Lindi and her family be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem. May Steve’s memory be a blessing for our congregation and for all who had the privilege of knowing him.
Rabbi Yael Splansky and President Joan Garson
