My favorite teacher

Rabbi Sheldon Zimmerman
Rabbi Sheldon Zimmerman had a profound influence on my life and values. I was more than just his student, I felt like I was his disciple. As he talks about in this interview, he left Dallas and Temple Emanu-El more than 20 years ago, but I still miss him, his lectures, his sermons, his teachings and his friendship. You can get a small inkling of what he stands for in this interview, but you will not be able to sense the power, the energy and the dynamic qualities that he possesses here. For that, I guess, you'll just have to schlep on out to the Hamptons. That being said, there are far worse places to be.
