Rabbi Allan David Kensky of Wilmette’s Beth Hillel Congregation Bnai Emunah will be retiring at the end of June after serving for 11 years with the synagogue. The 66-year-old says the thing he enjoyed the most was the one on one interaction with people, Wilmette Life reported.
Synagogue President Arlene Gold praised Kensky’s ability to knit a segmented congregation together, whether through the 2004 merger of former Skokie-based Congregation Bnai Emunah with Beth Hillel or through the recent tough economy, Wilmette Life reported.
