The Continued Life of Rabbi David R. Senter

I am honored to have had you in my life, Rabbi. Your light shone in this community as I’m sure it did throughout your former congregations. I hope that we may all continue to fan those flames with which you warmed us, so we may light the way to a future of peace and justice in your honor.

I am grateful to be starting again as Librarian at Temple Israel Portsmouth at this time, a position which you championed. Thanks to your attention and advocacy, the community has come to value our synagogue’s library as a center of knowledge, study, entertainment, and belonging, and it is a great honor for me to be part of it once again.

Thank you for adding your touch and your care, and being on my team every step of the way. I somehow have to begin this chapter without you there, without your enthusiasm, without your ideas for progress. But I do, thank G-d, have your guidance. The spirit of understanding and love you brought into this institution remains, and we on the library committee will do our best to honor your memory.
