Remembering Rabbi Matthew Simon, z"l
With profound sadness, we share that Rabbi Matthew Simon, z"l, our friend, community leader, and past president of The Jewish Federation, passed away on September 10th. Rabbi Simon had a truly outsized impact on our Jewish community and served as confidante, colleague, teacher, friend, and advisor to many. May his family, friends, and loved ones be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem, and may his memory be for a blessing.
