Remembering Rabbi Aaron Landes (z"l)
Beth Sholom Congregation deeply mourns the passing of its beloved Rabbi Emeritus, Aaron Landes (z"l) on April 19, 2014--the 19th of Nisan, 5774. At his funeral, nearly 1,000 people filled our Main Sanctuary to pay tribute to a truly outstanding rabbi, teacher, communal leader and family man. Each of the speakers at the funeral highlighted different facets of Rabbi Landes' legacy.The tributes given in Rabbi Landes' memory paid homage to a man who was profoundly committed to his ideals and to his Jewish values both in his professional and in his private life. In recognition of the moving nature of the tributes paid to Rabbi Landes at his funeral, we sought permission from the speakers to publish their eulogies so that all who wish to read and re-read them can again appreciate the impact of this truly remarkable spiritual leader.
We hope these words will continue to serve as inspiration and affirm our faith that the memory of Rabbi Aaron Landes will endure as an everlasting blessing.
