The children “adored” Michael Weiner, the retired rabbi related. That would be Mr. Weiner the Sunday school teacher. He was also the fellow who headed the baseball players’ union until his death from brain cancer Nov. 21, but it’s highly unlikely that many of his union members knew him as the teacher of fourth and fifth graders at the Jewish Center of Northwest Jersey in Washington, N.J.michael-weiner-225
Rabbi Ellen Lewis, who recently retired after 19 years at the temple, told me about one of Weiner’s students.
“There is a young boy coming up for bar mitzvah this year,” she wrote in an e-mail from Japan, “who considered moving his date earlier so Mr. Weiner could be there. Since each child chooses a mitzvah project during the 7th grade year, this boy chose Voices against Brain Cancer because he wanted to help Mr. Weiner.”
Voices actually became a school-wide project a year ago for its annual 5K run-walk when the organization honored Weiner. The temple had one of the largest teams, if not the largest, in this year’s event, which was held just four days before Weiner died.
