Rabbi Leonard Beerman: Giant of Justice


All Saints Church joins all who grieve the loss of our rabbi-in-residence Rabbi Leonard Beerman — beloved friend, mentor, and inspiration to so many — who passed away early on December 24th. Beerman was 93 years old and, until his final days, full of the extraordinary energy that left such a deep imprint on those privileged to be in his presence. The funeral celebrating his life was held at Leo Baeck Temple on Sunday, December 28th — and is available online here.

Other tributes included:
The Los Angeles Daily News
The Jewish Journal by David Myers
The Nation
and The Los Angeles Times

May Leonard Beerman’s memory be a blessing to all who knew this giant of justice, love and compassion.
