Vassar Temple Names Religious School After Former President, Seth A. Erlebacher

When Vassar Temple opens religious school on September 5th, it will be as the “Seth A. Erlebacher Religious School,” in memory of Seth Erlebacher, who served as the temple’s president until his untimely death last year.

Naming a religious school after a person is rare across the landscape of American Judaism. This unique step at Vassar Temple reflects Seth’s extraordinay passion for Jewish learning, his commitment to the temple, and the many ways in which he made his presense felt.

The renaming of the school is complemented by the creation of the Hineni Fund, also in Seth’s memory, to support the school and the work that it does.

Seth left behind his wife and two daughters, and is survived by both of his parents.

More information about the Seth A. Erlebacher Religious School can be found on its website: School-VassarTemple.org, or by contacting its director, Dr. Joel M. Hoffman (845-454-2570 or RSDirector@VassarTemple.org). For information about the Hineni Fund, contact Andi Ciminello (845-452-1190 or andi@ecosystemsstrategies.com).
