Baruch Dayan Ha’emet: Philip Grinker

Dear Temple Beth Shalom Congregation, we received the sad news this morning that our friend Philip Grinker passed last night.  Our hearts are with Sandi, Rick, Debbie, and their extended family as they prepare to lay Phil to rest.  As many of you know, Phil had a long illness and he expressed gratitude daily for the time he had to continue serving his synagogue and the community.  Phil was a mensch, warm and kind, a model of what it is to do tikkun olam; and we are grateful for the time he gave to us as well.
