Carol and Dale Wolf were pillars of the Shaare Emeth community, ever-present and supportive, sharing their wisdom, generosity, and love of Judaism. Carol and Dale practiced the middah (ethical trait) of anavah (humility) in everything they did. They made space for others to shine through their welcoming presence and their genuine respect for all people. All in the community are invited to share in a morning of learning, prayer and nourishment to honor all their precious gifts.
