Mazel Tov to Shannon Orand (survivor of "Rabbi" Leib Tropper)
The Awareness Center wants to thank Shannon Orand for her bravery and tenacity. Shannon was named as one of the 2009 Rape Victim Advocates of the year.
The Awareness Center asks that people stand up when Shannon Orand walks in a room as one would do for a rabbi to show honor and respect for this hero and a role model for other women.
Jewish Israel would like to wish a heartfelt Mazal Tov to JI member Shannon Orand upon her conversion to Judaism which she received in Israel earlier this week. Welcome to the Jewish people, Rachel (Shannon’s Hebrew name)!
Members of the Beit Din were Chief Rabbi Dov Lior of Hevron, Chief Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu of Safed, and Rabbi Rafi Ostroff. Another highly respected Rav officiated over the conversion. To read more click here
