Honoring the Memory of Rabbi Aaron David Panken

Dear Colleagues,

We are all devastated by the tragic death of Rabbi Aaron Panken. Whether you knew Aaron personally as a friend, learned from his wisdom as a teacher, or honored him as the president of our seminary, we have all experienced a loss.  We grieve as one community. We know that many of you have reached out to each other; we hope that you will continue to do so in the days and weeks ahead.  At times of sorrow, the greatest gift that we can give each other is the opportunity to be together as a community.

The following are ways in which the CCAR will be providing resources and support for all of us as we process our grief in the weeks to come.

In addition, please click here and login as a CCAR member if you would like to reach out to Aaron’s family with words of condolences and need their contact information.

May these opportunities enable us to support one and other and honor Aaron’s memory.

Zeicher Tzadik Livrachah.
