Message from Rabbi Davis, Former Rabbi

Dear Friends,

It feels like at this point I've already made a good number of goodbyes, so I will try to keep this one brief. As I near the last weeks of being the rabbi of BSBI, many thoughts race through my mind. It has been one of the greatest privileges of my life to serve as your rabbi for all these years. I am excited about the new adventure that lies ahead of me in Israel, but at the same time I will sorely miss all of you.

As I look back at my time here in Charleston, I have many fond memories. We shared a lot together - many minyanim, classes, high energy Shabbos dinners, spirited holiday parties, floods, real and fake hurricanes, High Holidays in the beautiful Sanctuary, growth and learning. You loved and nurtured my family, and you challenged me to be the best rabbi I could be. I still have a lot to learn!

Ariela and I came to Charleston with no family in town, and we are leaving behind our new found family. But we are not really leaving anyone behind, because we expect to stay in touch with y'all regularly.

The Talmud in Taanit 7a teaches: And this is what Rabbi Ḥanina said, "I have learned much from my teachers and even more from my friends, but from my students I have learned more than from all of them."

As much as I have tried to teach Torah here in Charleston, it is you who have truly taught me the most. I am constantly inspired by your search for knowledge and truth, your sincerity and southern warmth, and the heartfelt support and care that you show those you love.

I wish the Hobermans nothing but the greatest success, they are so fortunate to be joining our shul.

Although I will no longer be the BSBI Rabbi, I will always remain your friend and part of your family. Please stay in touch!
