I want to take this opportunity to offer words of gratitude to my friend and colleague, Cantor Mandi Beckenstein, for her service to the Debbie Friedman School of Sacred Music Alumni Association as the DFSSM Alumni Engagement Coordinator. Under her guidance and leadership, the Alumni Associations has engaged students, welcomed them as alumni, created a community that is unique to the cantorial alumni, fostered connections between alumni, both online and offline.
Mandi’s tenure as DFSSM Alumni Association staff will end at the end of September. I am grateful for her hard work, dedication, commitment, and reliability. Please join me in thanking her for all of her efforts. I hope that we can work together to ensure that wonderful initiatives she nurtured so diligently will continue and thrive into the future. Additionally, I do wish that Mandi will continue her alumni association leadership as a valued alumna, when the time is right for her.
Mandi, thank you for everything you have done to support our work. We were blessed to have you as a partner and continue to value you as a colleague!
