Tribute to Ester Bard z"l
Eli Wiesel said "The opposite of love, is not hate, it is indifference." Ester Bard was a compelling force for religious, educational and cultural activities at Beit Rayim Synagogue until her untimely death on January 13th, 2012. I want to thank Ester and Eli for their dedication and commitment to Holocaust Education. They have given me the greatest gift; the opportunity, to work with them and highly motivated others, and to be an active part of such important and meaningful programming for our community. Eli and Ester are an inspiration to me and so many others and have created a lasting legacy to Holocaust Education and Remembrance. We greatly appreciate their vision and tireless efforts. Their support of Holocaust education is very inspiring and serves as a role model to us all.
