“I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.” E.B. White
Most of us know Charlotte and her adorable daughter, Remi, from seeing Charlotte attentively caring for her, first in a front pack as she rocked infant Remi to sleep during services, and more recently watching her follow a curious toddler around the Temple, making sure that Remi is safe. Remi loves music and always perked up whenever she heard it, even when she was dozing off. At Remi’s baby-naming ceremony, surrounded by friends and family, Charlotte articulated her wishes for Remi. They were not unlike those of most parents remarking on the strength of community and how supported she felt by family, colleagues, friends and Temple community. Remi Louise is 16 months old. Her special interests include eating yogurt with her hands, reading books and spending time with her Nana.
