TOBIN--Gary. The faculty and Board of CLAL-The National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership extends its deepest condolences to Diane, Adam, Amy, Sarah, Aryeh, Mia, Jonah, and Josiah on the terrible loss of Dr. Gary Tobin, loving and dedicated husband, father, and grandfather. The Jewish people has lost one of its most visionary, courageous, creative, wise, passionate, and loving scholar- activist- community builders. No one in Jewish life has done more to nurture a more inclusive paradigm of Jewish peoplehood for the 21st Century. Gary was not only a leader and our teacher, he was our dear friend. We honor his memory by continuing his work, bringing every Jew, wherever they live, however hidden or disconnected and however they practice, into the one Jewish People Gary so loved. Rabbi Irwin Kula, President Rabbi Brad Hirschfield, President Larry Gellman, Chairman
