A Righteous Man Has Passed

Rabbi Isiah Wolgemuth, a man of trememndous learning, of patience, kindness, piety, and gentleness, a man who truly walked with God, passed from this world to the next on Sunday night.

Time does not permit me to write a fitting eulogy here. Suffice it to say that had I been home, and not in Las Vegas, I would have immediately gone from my home to the funeral in NJ. It grieves me bitterly that I am here and was unable to show my old teacher this final respect.

Aside from my parents, I owe most to Rabbi Wolgemuth. If you consider me a good and moral person, you have him to thank.
