Sunrise, Sunset

As the world focused on the lunar eclipse coinciding with the equinox,

visible in North America,

 the full moon over Jerusalem seemed exceptionally large and bright

and the views from the Jewish Quarter in the Old City were spectacular.

The days will be getting longer as the seasons change.

Sadly, retired Chazan Yaakov Yitzchak Spanglet,  

formerly of  Toledo, Ohio passed away quietly during the night.

Beloved  ‘Jack’ came to America as a young child, grew up in New York,

and raised his family in Ohio.

He had the zechut, the merit, to spend the last two decades

of his long life in Israel surrounded by family.


 “One season following another” was one of his favorite lyrics, 

 from ‘his’ song …”Sunrise, Sunset”.

 He will be remembered fondly by friends, his wife,

and many children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

May his memory be a blessing.

    Jerusalem is amazing at night as in the day.

    It is sad to read about Jack Spanglet’s death. May G-D put his arms around you and give you peace.
