We are honored to welcome Mary Warrener, Professor of English at SUNY Orange, sometimes administrator, always faculty, teaching everything from college prep courses to Shakespeare. “After starting my study with Rabbi Romer over fourteen years ago, I had the opportunity to revive the college’s two Bible literacy courses, bringing together my academic and personal interest in biblical narrative. This year, I am also honored to have joined the CEHV Board”.
