Events that changed my life: Coping with my fatherís death when I was 10 and watching my mother rise above the tragedy and continue to provide stability to my sisters and me; participating in youth-group leadership camp and meeting and working with rabbis who cared; going to Israel for the first time in 1964; being ordained; reading Viktor Franklís book Manís Search for Meaning; loving my association with Rabbi Alan Singer Green, who helped mold my rabbinate; feeling grateful to all the members of my congregation who allowed me to share in their sacred moments and kvelling from several of my students who chose the rabbinate; and feeling blessed by the love and support of my wife Elaine.
