“Keter shem tov” means the crown of a good name. Rabbi Shimon bar Yohai said: “There are three crowns: the crown of Torah, the crown of priesthood, and the crown of royalty, but the crown of a good name is above them all.” (Pirkei Avot 4:13) Please join us on May 2 through Zoom, as we honor Ellen Weiss with the Keter Shem Tov Award. It is fitting that we honor her with this special award because her good name is closely linked withMishkan Torah.
