The day in July that I heard about the passing of Elie Wiesel, I knew immediately that I would want to honor his memory this Yom Kippur. So often I have quoted his teachings during the High Holidays, especially in the martyrology, Eleh Ezkarah, as I did today. This Yom Kippur, as we reflect on our responsibilities as Jews and as human beings, and as we will soon recite Yizkor, the Memorial prayers, it seems only right to take time to remember Elie Wiesel’s legacy and to commit to honoring him by our actions.

Evelyn Rosen Budd, Etta Fay Orkin and Carole Epstein are celebrating their Second B’nai Mitzvah together this Shabbat, seventy years after the trio celebrated their first B’nai Mitzvah together.
The three were part of a group of seven girls at Temple of Aaron in St. Paul. These young women were among the first girls in the state to celebrate their B’nai Mitzvah. The year was 1946 and the war had just ended.
