I was so touched by the words Rabbi Tom had to say about music and how it opened and elevated a congregation's worship. The connection to music and it's expression
to be closer to God, is something he understands and is unapologetic about. Without realizing it, I needed to do some research and was inspired and touched by his
words and passion for music - it transcends us and allows for something more. I loved it, thank you. -Ellen

HI, Rabbi Tom, Remember your star Hebrew pupil from Cedar Village? I am delighted for you and your family that you are moving forward in your life and ministry. But, I am also sad that the Cincinnati community has lost you all.I will always and fondly remember your smile, encouragement and the way you picqued my spiritual growth. Should you you return to Cincinnati even for a visit I would like to treat you to a Starbucks and share a conversation. Blessings to you in your new home and situation. Dave Kroger

Baruch haba! It was wonderful to meet you today. I look forward to mutual blessing, working with you, and the days, weeks, months, years ahead. Our community, and I mean all of Brattleboro and Windham County, and the surrounding areas, not just BAJC, is so fortunate to have you.

Hello Rabbi Tom Welcome to our congregation. I met you briefly after the Saturday morning service you led at the shul. I am so glad you will be joining us with your family, whom I look forward to meeting soon, as well. I am especially happy about your musical strengths and interests. Mazel tov, Linda Hecker

Rabbi, It was with mixed emotions that I read your e-mail. Obviously I am happy for your finding new employment, but disappointed you will be leaving town. It does sound like a wonderful oportunity where you can combine both your spiritual gifts and love for music. So I say Mazel Tov and my only advice is to make sure you pack your long undies for the winter months. From my Mothers genuine appreciation and gratitude for your kindness to the friendship we have developed, there will be a definite void in you leaving Cincinnati. Good Luck in Vermont. Their gain is our loss. Best Regards, Rick

Dear Rabbi Tom, I can't tell you how special you made Michelle and Aaron's wedding. I'm sorry I never got to speak to you personally and tell you how wonderful and warm you are. You made everyone in the room - the family and guests feel a part of Michelle and Aaron's moment. I loved the ambience you created and how beautifully you spoke to them and about them. Thank you so much for being a special part of their ceremony. They loved having you marry them and so did we. The ketubah cermeony was beautiful too. I heard you are moving to Vermont! Much happiness and good luck to you there. They are lucky to get you. Again, thank you so much - we appreciate all you did. Fondly, Raquel and Ron Koff

Dear Tom, I wish you great good fortune and well-being in Vermont. Brattleboro looks like a lovely place to live (I checked out some websites)--manageable in size, artsy, and beautiful. There are many of us, I am sure, that are sorry to hear you are leaving Cincinnati, but we all must follow the path that lead us along in life. You will be busy in Vermont, but don't forget us here in the Cincinnati. Take care and enjoy your new path. With Love, Megan

Mazel Tov, Tom. Your talents had to be recognized. By copy of your e-mail, I'm asking our webmaster and humanist philosopher, Peter Bishop, to add Shir HeHarim to our web site (www.ifshj.org). We can both glean info. about the congregation from its web site, but it would also be great if you would e-mail Peter info. about your philosophical beliefs as you once told me. The two of you could be compatriots. Marvin

Rabbi Heyn, what I admire most about you is the welcoming manner you have for everyone, regardless of religious beliefs. I am from an interfaith marriage. At my father Perry Brenner's funeral, you sang the Lord's Prayer in Hebrew and then recited it in English........so moving to all present. Your gift is how you touch people. Good luck to you and your family.

Dear Tom, I read with sadness for me and joy for you that you are leaving Cincinnati for new opportunities to put your many talents to work. Your presence here certainly has been an important ingredient of my Jewish life through our mutual connection with my beloved Perry Brenner. Your new community is indeed fortunate to have you in their midst. I hope they show you proper appreciation! Shalom and l'hitraot, Monique
