This week’s 100 Reasons blog features Beth El members Robyn Harris and Bruce Waldo.
Robyn: I grew up at Beth El. Bruce and I met in California.
Bruce: We met in LA, and when we were dating we would come back here to visit her folks, and I loved it. I grew up in a small community in California, and Mt Lebanon reminded me of that, so I wanted to come back here. I think it’s a great place for our young daughter to grow up.
Robyn: My sister Stacy (Vestal) was here, and she encouraged us to come back to Beth El and give it a try.
Bruce: So we came to a service, and Rabbi Alex was just so awesome—so giving and kind and approachable.
Robyn: And funny . . .
Bruce: Yes, so funny! So we thought, let’s do it. And then when we met Rabbi Amy, she’s just so awesome, too. Kind and sweet and good. We love it here.
