For Jack Roth

Today, the 12th day of תשרי, which began at sundown September 26th, marks the first anniversary of the passing of my dear friend Jack Roth. Jack was a great supporter of the Jewish National Fund and the State of Israel. In his honor I have already donated this year to the JNF, and encourage others to do so as well. Through the JNF website you can have a tree (or trees) planted in the name of a loved one to commemorate any simcha (bar/bat mitzvah, wedding, graduation, et cetera) or as a memorial commemorating a yahrzeit, as I have done for Jack. If you would just like to donate and have no special occassion or person to honor, feel free to plant a tree in the name of Jack Roth.

I miss you, Jack.
