Hello everyone, this is your Island reporter from central Vancouver Island!! We gave Major General Andrew Christie a fine farewell at the Courtenay Cemetery where his remains were interred alongside his beloved wife, Barbara. Those of us in Torah Talk knew Andy best; living in Comox and caring for Barbara made trips down Island infrequent at best.
We then drove to Parksville for Shabbat and on Saturday morning had a service with 25 or so mid-Islanders. It was a lovely opportunity for us to meet, share stories, and build connection. Steven Larre and Jon Sanders, KM members, joined us!
Whilst up Island I heard that Kabbalat Shabbat was everything and then some, so clearly KM is in good hands. Wishing everyone good health, and long life.
Rabbi Lynn Greenhough
