Rabbi David Wolpe, the senior rabbi at Sinai temple for the last seven years, has been diagnosed with a brain lesion.
The diagnosis came following a hospitalization when Wolpe experienced a seizure on October 23 at the University of Pennsylvania, where he was speaking at the dedication of a new Hillel House.
It is anticipated that Wolpe will undergo surgery to correct this condition in the very near future. The prognosis is for a complete recovery and after a period of rest and recuperation, Wolpe plans to return full time to his duties at Sinai and in the community at large.
The rabbi's request of the community at this time is for their patience and continued prayers.
