Let’s have some fun! We’re having an outdoor family-friendly Shabbaton to celebrate Rabbi Levine complete with crafts, an ice cream truck, a special “Rabbi Levine” coloring book, photo booth, and an interactive construction project made entirely out of cans that will be donated to benefit those with food insecurity in our neighborhood.

Send a Tribute to Rabbi Levine

As Rabbi Levine approaches his retirement, we know the most important blessings for his next chapter will come from you, his beloved congregants. After thirty years at CRS, you hold the sacred relationships, the memorable stories, and the profound Torah (wisdom) that shape the essence of Rabbi Levine’s rabbinate. No celebration would be complete without your words and reflections. Share a video messagean email, or handwritten letter (CRS c/o Gail Becker 7 West 83rd Street, NY, NY 10024) by June 5 to let Rabbi Levine know what he means to you.


The Levine Family Access for All Fund

has been created to recognize the long tenure and service of Rabbi Robert Levine and Gina Levine to Congregation Rodeph Sholom

For over 30 years, Rabbi Levine has committed his rabbinate to the growth and vitality of our synagogue. A central tenet of his rabbinate is the primary place of the synagogue in modern life and his strong belief that the essential elements of the synagogue – worship, education, community – should be open and accessible to all who wish to participate. Gina has been instrumental in engaging congregants, spearheading major social justice initiatives, leading Sisterhood, and co-creating our Shireinu program.

If you wish to honor Rabbi Robert and Gina Levine you may donate here.
