Rabbi Scheim's Memory Book

We are very excited to be creating a keepsake coffee table book as a special gift to Rabbi Philip Scheim to honour his 40 years in the rabbinate, and of devoted service to Beth David B’nai Israel Beth Am.

We are looking for you to think back and search for any special memories that you might be able to share, for inclusion in the book, to be presented to Rabbi Scheim later this year when we have an opportunity to celebrate safely, in person.

Please submit any special pictures with you and Rabbi Scheim that include honours, significant events, personal memories, or milestones, along with your thoughts, recollections, and anecdotes. If you do not have pictures to share, written submissions are welcome!

All photos require a date, names of any people in the picture, and the event context. Be aware that all submissions include an implied consent to appear in the book. Written submissions must not exceed 300 words and will be subject to editing for clarity and brevity. Also note that there is no guarantee that all submissions will be published.

Please submit high-resolution digital photos, or digitized copies of either slides or original negatives. Colour, black and white, or sepia are all acceptable and must be received by May 31!

Please send all emails and attachments to Michael Rubin at, and use the subject line Rabbi’s Memory Book.
