On behalf of the Officers, Board of Trustees, Staff and Families of Beth El Congregation, we sorrowfully acknowledge the passing of our esteemed CANTOR EMERITUS, SAUL Z. HAMMERMAN, whose relationship with our synagogue extended for more than 56 years. In his active service as our Hazzan for 45 years, he elevated the quality of our worship with his magnificent voice and profound sense of spirituality. Throughout that time he ministered faithfully as a pastor to our families, whether at times of joy or sadness, adding the uplift and the comfort of the riches of the Jewish Cantorial tradition. He taught our children, and he added distinction to our synagogue through the presentation of programs of high artistic quality. He also served his professional colleagues as national President of the Cantors Assembly. He will forever hold a place of affection in the hearts of our families. We extend our deepest sense of condolence to his beloved wife Aileen G. Hammerman, and his children Jan Hammerman, Rochelle Green and Dr. Samuel Hammerman. May his memory forever be for a blessing. RABBI STEVEN SCHWARTZ, Senior Rabbi
