It is with profound heartbreak and immeasurable pain that we reach out to you with tragic news. Our beloved Cantor Ilan Mamber suffered a heart attack and unfortunately, he passed away on Tuesday, July 31st. We have no intelligent words to express our overwhelming grief.
The Talmud teaches that God collects the tears of those who cry for the righteous and keeps them in God's sacred treasure. Cantor Mamber was perhaps the embodiment of righteousness, love, authenticity, and kindness. These are exactly the ways we will navigate these turbulent waters, together, and these are the tears we will cry.
