Vassar Temple was honored by Rabbi Golomb’s participation in the ceremony transitioning the former St. Francis Hospital to the new MidHudson Regional Hospital of Westchester Medical Center on May 12th. The theme of the ceremony was “bridges”, not only between geographic regions, but also between communities, from past to future, and from legacy to new technology. Hospital staff and administrators were in attendance as were town, city, and county officials. Along with clergy from three other faiths, Rabbi offered a traditional blessing for the new enterprise. Following the ceremony, he also participated in a worship service in the hospital’s new interfaith chapel,for which he was asked to read from a sacred text. His choice for this occasion was the 30th Psalm, which begins with the phrase “a song for the dedication of the house.”
