NC Hillel Mourns the Loss of Rabbi Frank Fischer (z"l), Former Director

Nov 19, 2018

Baruch dayan ha’emet – Blessed is the true judge

We are saddened by the loss of Rabbi Frank Fischer (z"l), former, longtime director of North Carolina Hillel, who passed away this morning. We offer our sympathies to Pat, Bernie, Shari and Gavi Fischer, Yoni Fischer, Jordana Brown, Isaiah, Aden and Aviv Fischer-Brown, and their family on the death of their beloved husband, father, and grandfather.

Funeral services will take place at Judea Reform Congregation at 11:00 a.m. tomorrow, November 20. The address is 1933 W. Cornwallis Road, Durham. Shiva minyanim will be held at North Carolina Hillel on:
-       Thursday, November 22, 9:30 a.m.
-       Sunday, November 25, 7:30 p.m.

 The family requests that tzedakah in Rabbi Fischer's memory be sent to North Carolina Hillel (www.nchillel.org/donate) and American Jewish World Service (www.ajws.org/donate).

Rabbi Fischer made an impact on so many of us, including many alumni of UNC-Chapel Hill. Anyone who would like to share their memories of Rabbi Fischer as a teacher, mentor or friend, is invited to email their reflections to rememberingrabbifrankfischer@nchillel.org by Sunday, January 6. North Carolina Hillel will compile these memories for Rabbi Fischer’s family.  

May the Ever Present One comfort the bereaved among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.
