Sad News from Congregation Agudath Sholom - Shimon Peres Wednesday, September 28 - 10:15 AM

Sad News from Congregation Agudath Sholom
Congregation Agudath Sholom Sad News
Together with the Peres family, the nation of Israel, the Jewish people and the world, we deeply mourn the passing of former Israeli President and Prime Minister Shimon Peres who died last night at the age of 93. The funeral and burial will be on Jerusalem's Mount Herzl on Friday.
In the words of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu:

"Shimon dedicated his life to the independence of our nation. As a visionary, he looked to the future. As a man of defense, he fortified the strength of Israel in many ways-some remain unknown to this very day. As a man of peace, he worked up to his final days to promote reconciliation with our neighbors and a better future for our children."

"In his seven years as the president of Israel, he's done much to unite the people, and the people responded with great love. There aren't many people in our history who contributed so much to the State of Israel and the people of Israel."

"And now, Shimon, the beloved of the nation, is saying goodbye to us. But he will never be away from our hearts and memories. Shimon Peres' name will be forever etched in the story of the Jewish people's independence, as one of the great leaders and founding fathers of the State of Israel."

In the words of his son, Chemi, "Today, with deep sorrow, we bid farewell to our beloved father, the ninth president of Israel.  Our father's legacy has always been to look to tomorrow. We were privileged to be part of his private family, but today we sense that the entire nation of Israel and the global community share this great loss. We share this pain together."

May his family be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem and may his memory be for a blessing.
