Honoring Rabbi Gluck

וְכָל מַעֲשֶׂיךָ יִהְיוּ לְשֵׁם שָׁמָיִם

Let all your actions be for the sake of heaven.

—Pirkei Avot 2:12

Since 1991, Rabbi Gluck has served Temple Beth-El with a passionate Jewish spirit, deep scholarship, and a steadfast commitment to social justice. His love of Torah and the Jewish people, enthusiasm for learning and teaching, and unwavering commitment to acting on behalf of the greater good are reflected in the sacred partnership he has fostered with our community over the years and the many ways he has guided and cared for us.

Please join us as we honor Rabbi Gluck with a year-long series of special events that will include teaching and tributes from friends and colleagues from throughout the U.S. and Israel, special musical guests, and a celebratory gala in June.
