In Loving Memory of Michael Geller

welcome centerMichael Geller, past president and beloved member and friend passed suddenly and unexpectedly on Friday July 11th, while visiting family in Atlanta, GA.

Michael was an incredible blessing to our community as a whole, and to each individual he met…he will be missed beyond words.

Most recently, Michael was the chair of the Membership committee – and he worked tirelessly, creating a committee that was invigorated and dedicated.  At every Friday night Shabbat service – Michael was at the door – greeting old friends and making sure that new members and visitors felt welcome. He was always the first to show up, the last to leave and continuously looking for ways to help with whatever needed to be done.

Carol, Keshet and MichaelMichael loved life and lived it to the fullest. Hiking, biking, or climbing mountains – Michael’s joy in life was felt by all.
