The congregation at MMAE joins with our member, Myra Schein, in mourning the loss of Myra's bother Jack Gresser. Jack was a very pleasant man who would come to MMAE minyans to observe various yahrtzeits throughout the year. I remember vividly seeing Jack pull up to the shul and his giving me a warm greeting. We pray that the family's warm memories of Jack will always be for a blessing and will give you a measure of comfort.
