While in Manchester, he spent many summers working at Eisner Camp and leading trips to Israel. He went on to spend more than six years as the Rabbi of the Hebrew Congregation of St. Thomas.. After retiring the second time, Rabbi Starr and his wife Linda started a chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. He has spent much of the last 10 years as the rabbi on cruise ships.
