Rabbi Jeffrey & Mindy Glickman
When Jeff & MIndy met "Life Took A Turn To The Wonderful", as expressed on their wedding invitation. Fortified with Jewish values instilled by their parents and grandparents they have been to Haiti and Bangladesh on humanitarian missions. The couple enjoys traveling , often escorting groups to Israel. They recently returned from Tour To The Wonderful, a "pandemic aware' cross country giving journey.
Rabbi Jeff is proud to call South Windsor, CT his home. He's been in town so long, his name has almost become synonymous with Temple Beth Hillel, a small, dynamic faith community. Involved locally, Rabbi Jeff was elected as a town councilor in 2018. He has served as the chaplain for both the South Windsor fire and police departments.
Rabbi Glickman can play one song on his guitar, which can be heard each day at 5pm during the live 5 minute live broadcast. Coincidently the only song he can play is Woodie Guthrie's hit "This Land Is Your Land" which turned out to be a perfect theme song for the couple's 2021 USA cross-country journey. Rabbi Jeff says he was motivated to embark on Tour To The Wonderful after hearing a rabbi consistently speak about the Jewish pillar of tsedaka.
Wherever she lives Mindy immerses herself in her Jewish community, locally and globally. Mindy is her community's Hebrew instructor, founder of Mitzvah Mamas, a community leader with Momentum and is on leadership teams of The Joint Distribution Committee-JDC, Arava Institute & Jewish Federation of Greater Hartford. Mindy grew up in Peekskill, New York, where she has been involved in her family's tuxedo business Marty's Formal Wear. She continues to be amazed by the couple's 7 grown children, and how they've each actualized their God given potential.
Seymour the RV (he/him)
Toward the end of 2020, Seymour joined the family. He is compact and stealth, making parking even in a city possible. Seymour has a shower, a toilet, a small kitchen and twin beds which convert to king size. The solar panels make living off the grid doable and very comfortable for two people who tolerate each other's idiosyncrasies.
Fun and adventure is never far. In their spare time Jeff and Mindy are game inventors, and the principals of Tour To The Wonderful, llc. Their games have been licensed to more than a dozen companies.
