Rabbi Jonathon Miller is the most precious, kind person I have ever met. In the midst of rampant segregation, I was extended a kind hand of peace. That peace has led our congregation with a calm steady voice through the most trying times when the world has been afraid of everything — 9/11, terrorist bombings, slurs and graffiti on the walls of the Temple building, moving to a Baptist Church during the restoration, etc.
Regardless of race, different faiths and religions, Rabbi Miller has always been like my own father regardless of our ages. He has worked tirelessly regardless of whether he himself was dealing with his own problems, health, broken bones and death of his loved ones. I always wonder how he keeps going. Thanks to Rabbi Miller I have been allowed the opportunity to serve God freely, from the first sermon I heard him preach like a fire and brimstone – southern-like style — with his own unsolicited amen corner.
We all wish you, Judi, Aaron, Ben, Alana and your entire family “Shalom”.
Forever my friend,
