The Beth Shalom community joins with the entire Jewish world in mourning the passing of Rabbi David Goldberg, Rabbi Emeritus of London's Liberal Jewish Synagogue. Rabbi Goldberg was a principal founder of the Progressive Movement here in Italy, and we, at Beth Shalom, remember him for all the assistance, participation and words of wisdom that he gave us during our formative years. Our Siddurim , as well as the Haggadah ,which we recently used, are all based on those of London's Liberal Jewish Synagogue and Rabbi Goldberg played a major role in helping us produce them. He was a brilliant thinker, honest, outspoken and with a keen sense of humor.
May his memory be of a blessing.
