An Update from Kehilla’s Executive Director Michael Saxe-Taller

Dear Friends,

As many of you know, I have been off work at Kehilla for the month of March. At the end of February, I had an intestinal obstruction and needed to have immediate surgery to correct the problem. After a few early complications, I have been resting, healing and regaining my strength, and expect a full recovery.

I’m excited to say that as of March 30, I am working again. I am starting part time and returning to my full duties as soon as I’m able. I clearly have much catching up to do, so it will take me some time to get fully up to speed. You can engage with me as you need, just know it may take me awhile to get back to you. Thank you for your patience.

I was deeply touched by the outpouring of care and love that came my way from the Kehilla community. I so appreciated the cards, emails and meals delivered to my family — thank you! I have come through this ordeal even more grateful for my involvement with Kehilla.

I am also thankful for the many people who stepped up to keep things running at Kehilla during my absence — and it was quite a time to be absent! I want to thank Rabbi Dev and the whole Kehilla staff, as well as Board Co-chairs Karen Cohn and Catherine Lyons and a group of other board and lay leaders, for stepping into the breach and taking responsibility for whatever was needed. It is reassuring to know that we are in such capable hands.

As we continue to face these challenging times for our community and everyone around us, I am delighted to be able to rejoin our team.
