Lou Sigel z''l

Our rabbi, Louis Sigel, is gone.

Although after many years' membership in his Reform Temple, I started attending Conservative services to find out why my teenage daughter was getting up early on Saturday mornings, Rabbi Sigel always represented to me the best of the rabbinate, across denominational lines. He was a dignified scholar, short, a bit pompous but not at all unapproachable, and he had a great influence on me.
