A Fond Farewell to Rabbi Selwyn and Eileen Franklin - Episode #02

As he bid adieu to Colorado after six years as senior rabbi at BMH-BJ Congregation, Rabbi Selwyn Franklin stopped by the 990 KRKS AM studios to share some of his fond memories and to discuss his legacy.

Rabbi and Mrs. Franklin are much beloved by both the BMH-BJ membership and the Jewish community at large. He also enjoyed warm and cooperative relations with Colorado's non-Jewish community.

The Rabbi's warmth, eloquence, insights, intelligence and passion for his work won him many fans and friends. Among the topics he discusses are his dedication to "non-observant Orthodox Jews."  He also has a few words of advice for his successor, Rabbi Ben Greenberg, who officially began his tenure on July 1, 2012.
