Remembering I.L. Peretz, who died 100 years ago this week
Ordained in 1935, Regina Jonas died at Auschwitz. Now, she’s being honored.
I pray with angry, damaged, and difficult men. I stay because they’re like my brothers. And because sometimes they change.
We mark kids’ birthdays and the yahrzeit dates of older relatives we’ve lost. But for parents, our own special occasions get overlooked.
I never got to meet my grandmother, but the place I feel closest to her has always been her yahrzeit plaque in our synagogue
I thought Jewish law left no role for me to grieve when my fiancé’s brother died. Now, I finally can.
For years, I tried to forget my mother’s suicide. Then a yahrzeit notice made me face the past.
