May His Memory be for a Blessing 1933-2013

Since I don’t have everyone’s address, and you might not have heard yet, I wanted to pass on Spertus’ Press release  here about Rabbi Grossfeld’s death earlier this week.

I’ve talked to Bill Settles last night and we both think it would be a good idea for us Grossfeld Groupies to get together sometime soon for our own memorial.

Shiva information from Chicago Jewish Funerals is as follows:

Grossfeld Residence
2714 West Estes Avenue

    Please count me in regarding the “groupie” memorial.

    Still in shock concerning the passing of Rabbi Prof. Grossfeld. He had a profound effect on how I view the world and literally he saved spiritual life. Occasionally I pick up my books for study and the matter becomes very difficult; loose concentration.

    I am interested in an appropriate memorial too. Perhaps a donation at the vry minimum and certainly am open to all ideas.

    To all my classmates wish you greetings and please stay in touch.

    Please also count me in regarding memorial and let me know if I can help in any way. The only email addresses I have are for Mike Bass: and Robert Sheridan::
    Rob, Robert, Esther, Rich, Mike and I attended the funeral and briefly discussed a memorial, but didn’t have a chance to exchange information. Rob said he sees Dean Bell frequently and would discuss it with him, but thus far I have not heard anything.
    I am having major difficulty envisioning a world without Rabbi Grossfeld in it.

    I don’t think I’m using this right since my comment doesn’t show. Retry. I would very much like to see a Grossfeld group memorial and am willing to help however I can. The only email addresses I have are Mike’s at and Robert’s at Spertus probably has all the addresses and might send out a message to everyone about having a memorial. At the funeral, Rob said he would ask Dean Bell about it, but Ibhave heard no more since.
