Uncle Hy

From the newletter of the sisterhood of Kehila Kedosha Janina: “On Monday, February 13th, the President of Kehila Kedosha Janina, Hy Genee, died.  At least his body did.  His spirit will live on with us forever.  Those who were privileged to know Hy will truly miss this exceptional man.  Hy had no fancy degrees.  His knowledge was learned from 83 years of experience and an innate perception that came from the heart.  He did not acquire vast amounts of monetary wealth over the course of his life.  His wealth was measured by his loving family and the extended family of those he personally touched over the years.  Hy truly exemplified in everything he did what a man, especially a Jewish man, should be.  He took the tenets of his faith seriously, not only lovingly observing the rituals, but living his Judaism on a daily basis, observing the true essence of his faith in how he treated his fellow man.”
