Tem­ple Emanuel event will pay trib­ute to rabbi

KINGSTON, N.Y. » The life and work of the late Rabbi Jonathan Eich­horn will be cel­e­brated at Tem­ple Emanuel, 243 Albany Ave., on Sun­day, Oct. 29, at 2 p.m.

Eich­horn, who died in May at the age of 80, served both the con­gre­ga­tion and the Hud­son Val­ley com­mu­nity he called home for 36 years. He founded the Ulster County Re­li­gious Coun­cil in the 1980s, serv­ing as its chair­man un­til his re­tire­ment. The coun­cil was a uni­fy­ing force in Ulster, bring­ing re­li­gious lead­ers of many faiths to­gether with ac­tivists, laypeo­ple and lo­cal politicians. Eich­horn also served as a part­time prison chap­lain in the New York state prison sys­tem.

At Con­gre­ga­tion Emanuel, Rabbi Eich­horn touched the lives of his stu­dents and con­gre­gants alike, leav­ing a legacy of car­ing, com­pas­sion and kind­ness. One of the re­sults of his out­reach to the whole com­mu­nity was that the lo­cal Chris­tian com­mu­nity com­mis­sioned a crown for Con­gre­ga­tion Emanuel’s Holo­caust To­rah, a scroll that sur­vived the Nazis.

His fa­ther, Rabbi Max Eich­horn, was one of the first clergy into Dachau at the camp’s lib­er­a­tion in 1945 and held a ser­vice there for the sur­vivors.

Dur­ing the event, Eich­horn’s wife, Suzanne, and their chil­dren will share mem­o­ries and pho­to­graphs, along with tributes from many of the peo­ple he touched.

All are wel­come. Re­fresh­ments will be served.

Call (845) 338-6180 or send an email to rco­hen4@hvc.rr.com for more in­for­ma­tion.
