THANK YOU TO THE MACKINTOSH ENDOWMENT
Rabbi Deborah Sacks Mintz is joining us through the MacKintosh Visiting Musical Artist Endowment. John Mackintosh and his husband Jerry Marks joined Shir Hadash in 1998. John was an active member of our choir, led many of our Shir Shabbat Services and was a part of the finance committee. Sadly, John passed away in 2005 and in 2020, Jerry gifted the congregation this endowment in John’s name. A fitting tribute to someone who enjoyed the gift of Jewish music.
