Elie Wiesel, A”H

Wednesday, July 6th, 2016

The Jewish Press mourns the death, at age 87, of Professor Elie Wiesel, arguably the world’s best known Holocaust survivor due to his tireless writing and speaking on the horrors of the Nazis’ “Final Solution.” Without his eloquent calls to remembrance, the Holocaust would have soon been but a memory following the German surrender in 1945, despite the unspeakable scenes the victorious allies beheld in the concentration and death camps. It was a subject not easily embraced.

Leavened with the sensitivities and pen of the poet, Mr. Wiesel’s writings and teachings revealed inner philosophical conflicts: the traditional religious beliefs of his childhood in Sighet would not survive intact and gone forever would be the lofty thoughts of a youthful idealist seeking to study and celebrate his faith and the human condition. He seemed never able to resolve in his own mind whether the world had for a season been polluted by demons from a nether world or that humanity had simply run amok.

The unspeakable Jewish suffering to which he bore witness was etched into his very features. And as we continue to witness the prosecution of some of the Nazi tormentors who are now and in their nineties, and the listen to testimony of survivors who are of similar age, we cannot but wonder who, with Mr. Wiesel’s passing, can be counted on to keep the message alive?

As he said in his Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech, he had dedicated his life to trying “to keep memory [of the Holocaust] alive.” Why? “Because if we forget, we are guilty, we are accomplices.”

May his memory be a blessing.

Harold (Heshy) Jacob, A”H

Wednesday, June 29th, 2016

The Jewish Press  notes with sadness the passing of Heshy Jacob. A prominent member of the Jewish community of the Lower East Side of Manhattan, he served as general manager of several of the housing developments there, which for more than half a century have been home to countless Jewish residents.

He had strong views on many issues, including the pivotal importance of the housing developments and the Seward Park Urban Renewal Area to the future of the Lower East Side and its Jewish population.

Highly intelligent and possessed of a dynamic personality, he played leadership roles in key community assistance groups such as the United Jewish Council of the Lower East Side, where he served as chairman, and in the local and citywide efforts of Hatzaloh, of which he was a founding official and high ranking coordinator. He was also the longtime president of the iconic Bialystoker Synagogue. Early in his career he held a senior position in the New York City Controller’s office then led by Harrison Goldin.

A legendary and savvy networker, he enjoyed the confidence of many public officials over the years, working with them on many communal issues.

He was for decades a larger than life presence among us and will be sorely missed.

May his memory be a blessing.

Albert Klass, A”H

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2016

The Jewish Press notes with great sadness the death, at 105 years of age, of Albert Klass, brother of the newspaper’s founding publisher, Rabbi Sholom Klass, zt”l. He was a man of  wisdom and erudition, humility and dignity, with grace and a great sense of style. He had an infectious and ingratiating smile and greeted everyone with respect.

Though he made friends easily, his casual manner masked a sharp business acumen. From the beginning he shared his bother’s keen insight concerning the need in America’s Orthodox Jewish community in the latter decades of the 20th century for an authentically Jewish, English-language newspaper – one that would educate and inform and constitute a force to be reckoned with.

Indeed, in The Jewish Press’s formative years Albert was the paper’s liaison to the political world, reaching out to decision makers who thus became familiarized with our community’s special needs and its electoral clout.

Albert Klass is survived by his sister, Rivie Rosenthal, formerly a Jewish Press political cartoonist; his sons, Rabbi Yaakov Klass, The Jewish Press’s Torah editor, and Arthur Klass, its director of economic development; seven grandchildren and 28 great-grandchildren.

May his memory be a blessing.

Dr. Irving Moskowitz, A”H

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2016

The Jewish Press joins Klal Yisrael in mourning the passing, at age 88, of Dr. Irving Moskowitz, a larger-than-life ardent Zionist widely acknowledged as the leading advocate and financial backer of Jews purchasing land from Arabs beyond the Green Line – especially in eastern Jerusalem, Gush Etzion, Gush Katif, and Ramat HaGolan.

He championed the right of Jews to live anywhere in the biblical land of Israel and inspired and called upon many to join with him in asserting this right. A major Jewish philanthropist, he also contributed large sums for major efforts to restore Jewish life in eastern Jerusalem. Not as well known is that he was a serious financial supporter of Jewish causes generally.

Although an accomplished physician who embarked on an enormously successful career as a builder of hospitals, he was always mindful of his humble beginnings. His Moskowitz Foundation sponsors many scholarships for disadvantaged young people of all races, creeds, and religions in Israel, the United States, and all over the world.

May his memory be a blessing.
