On February 27, 2022, Temple Emanu-El will present its 65th anniversary Sapphire Celebration, honoring Rabbi Elaine Rose Glickman for her many contributions to the temple’s growth and vibrance. The goal for the fundraising event is to raise $150,000; proceeds will be used for the Religious School, Susan Schwaid Early Learning Center, and temple enhancements.

Since the Glickmans arrived in Sarasota in 2006, as Rabbi Brenner Glickman assumed the post of Senior Rabbi, Rabbi Elaine Glickman has contributed tremendously to the building of community – particularly among the fast-growing family population – among the congregation, presented innumerable parent and adult education offerings, greatly expanded community service offerings, and provided skilled and effective public relations services on behalf of the congregation. “When you look at our temple’s growth and success since the Glickmans’ arrival 15 years ago, it is impossible to imagine that any of it would have been possible without Rabbi Elaine’s dedication, passion and participation on nearly every front,” said Temple Emanu-El President Barry Gerber. "As a devoted member, Rabbi Elaine has served as a role model to our congregants. As a virtuous person, she provides her sacred work to the temple from the kindness of her heart."

The Sapphire Celebration takes place on Sunday, February 27, 11 am at the Benderson Family Hall of Temple Emanu-El (151 McIntosh Rd., Sarasota). Brunch will be catered by Michael’s On East. Tickets are $75/person; sponsorships and tribute book ads are available. Call 847-331-8518 for sponsorships and ads; visit sarasotatemple.org for tickets.
