Rodinsky Funeral Fund

Bob Rodinksy, the son of Sol and Ann Rodinsky, who were long-time stalwarts of the congregation, passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on Dec. 10. The funeral was on Tuesday, 12/18 in Gan Sholom at Sunset Gardens in Richland [map]. A fund was set up to help the family with funeral expenses. Contributions may be made through GoFundMe or the Congregation's donate page. Any funds remaining will be reserved for similar situations in the future.
