Has it really been 13 years since my dear father in law passed away?
He was a true "Renaissance Man", a modern scholar with more than superficial knowledge about many different interests.
His particular passions were Jewish history, archaeology and designing many of the beautiful porocheses that grace our shul today.
He was fiercely loyal to his community and his family (never making any distinction between blood or marital relatives).
He set a shining example of a helpful husband for my own better half to observe and emulate.
Readers who knew him are more than welcome to share their own remembrances.
