You can honor and pay tribute to Jehiel by donating funds in his name to support the Solomon Schechter Day School of Bergen County, a favorite charity of his and, not coincidentally, the school that two of his grandchildren attend. (Click on the “Add donation” button at the bottom of the SSDS web page to designate a donation in honor of Jehiel.)
Please put “In Honor of Rabbi Orenstein” in the dedication line.
Reb Jehiel was deeply connected to several synagogues. He spent most of his professional life at Congregation Beth El of South Orange, NJ, which he considered his spiritual home. Tributes and donations can be directed to: www.bethelnj.org.
A Rabbi Jehiel Orenstein Educational Development Fund has been established at Congregation B’nai Israel in Emerson, NJ, where his daughter, Debra, serves as rabbi. Donations can be directed to:http://www.bisrael.com/checkout
Among the founders of the Kol Rina/SOMA Independent Minyan are many friends and students of Reb Jehiel. Those who pray there can send contributions in his memory to SOMA c/o South Orange Post Office, P.O. Box 649, South Orange, NJ 07079.
