Local Rabbi Considered One of Country’s Most Inspirational
One of Aspen’s Jewish leaders was named recently as one of the country’s most inspiring rabbis. The Jewish Daily Forward listed David Segal in its annual list. Segal leads the Aspen Jewish Congregation, based at the Aspen Chapel. He received the accolade for holding services outside and increasing attendance. Segal says his wife, Cantor Rollin Simmons, also plays a role in what happens at the synagogue. APR’s Elise Thatcher spoke with them both… and she asked Segal what his reaction was when he heard news about his commendation.
