And just in case you don't already know:
Rabbi Paul J. Citrin was ordained by the Hebrew Union College in 1973. He was graduated from U.C.L.A. with a Bachelor of Arts degree in History in 1968. The focus of his rabbinate has always been in congregational life. His passions are education, Israel, and social justice. 
He is the author of a children’s novel, Joseph’s Wardrobe, a coauthor of Gates of Repentance for Young People, Ten Sheaves, A Collection of Sermons,  Addresses and Articles, and of Lights in the Forest: Rabbis Respond to Twelve Essential Jewish Questions
He is married to Susan Morrison Citrin. They have four children and eight grandchildren. Rabbi Citrin is currently serving as the rabbi of the Taos Jewish Center. 

There's always more. In this case - here's yet another version of

אַלע ברידער  Ale Brider!
All of us are brothers!
even those of us who are sisters
