Zecher Tzaddik Livracha

Fred Gottschalk was already retired from the presidency of Hebrew Union College when I entered rabbinic school, but it's hard not to feel his legacy in much of the college institute--in scholarship, in its egalitarian values, in its work with the non-Jewish faith community and relationship to Israel. His passing marks the end of an era for the Reform Movement and Judaism as a whole.

May his memory of righteousness be a blessing.
