Up to the Eagles
In more scouting news … Peggy Isaak Gluck, Eagle adviser for Boy Scouts of America’s Redwood District, writes that two Jewish young men became Eagle Scouts on Aug. 21. They are Josh Temes of Troop 14 in Palo Alto and Daniel Meier of Troop 27 in San Mateo.
The poet and the rabbi
Sam Doctors, formerly of San Anselmo, has released a book of his poetry, “Moods and Moments of a Restless Mind.” The former professor and entrepreneur has been writing poetry since his retirement in 2004. He dedicated the book to his wife, Meredith Cahn, in honor of her “completion of four years of classes at the Academy of Jewish Religion,” and her subsequent ordination in May 2011. Cahn, who began rabbinic studies at post-50 years old and commuted to Los Angeles for her classes, is now the rabbi at North Tahoe Hebrew Congregation in Tahoe Vista. Doctors and Cahn and their daughter Olga Cahn live in Truckee.

He was formerly at Bridgepoint in Los Altos and Aegis in Concord, and is replacing Marilyn Israel, who is now the director of strategic projects at Jewish Senior Living Group.
