I remember that sermon too and it was a seminal moment. It's not often that one person has such a big and long lasting impact on so many people. Rabbi Rosenthal was such an individual. I have thought about and been influenced by what he did all my life.
I recall that sermon. My mother mentioned that sermon to me for years and years.
I just learned about Rabbi Rosenthal's passing. I was a young student at Har Sinai Temple and heard him give the first sermon I ever heard against the Vietnam War. He was a fine rabbi!
I just learned today of Rabbi Rosenthal's passing. He was inspirational to me as a young teenager at Har Sinai. I am saddened by his death. My thoughts and prayers to Lila and the rest of his family.
I grew up with Rabbi Rosenthal's daughter Sandra, and was fortunate enough to share initmate moments with his family. I will miss his intelligence, kindness and sense of humor.
Rabbi Morton Rosenthal was instrumental to spread the word about Human Rights abuses in Argentina, our country of origin. Me and my family are very grateful that persons like Morton, not only brought the Argentine plight to the surface, but also helped save many lives in that country.
Our thoughts go to his family.
Uncle Morton, I loved you and I will miss you. You were a great Uncle.
Morton was a kind and loving Uncle. I always appreciated his efforts to help me in all my endeavors. He was also a merry punster and I enjoyed his presence at his family gatherings around the Jewish holidays
I loved my Uncle very much. He always took an interest in my businesses and inventions. He was a trusted and confident adviser.
I have many fond memories of Mort and Lila from my formative years at Har Sinai and in the "salon" that was regularly and informally held in my parents' living and dining room. Mort was a supportive influence on my life.
My thoughts and prayers are with Mort's family. I have fond memories of the early 1960's, after Mort became a Rabbi at Har Sinai, when Lila and he visited us in Margate.
Dearest Lila and family,
We can't find the words to express our sorrow and our sympathy for you, your kids and grandkids. We will feel this void left by dear Morton forever - a real Man, and a real Mensch, one of the greatest spirits, mightiest intellects and kindest hearts we ever had the privilege to know.
Ann, Ian and entire family
Dear Lila, David, Sandra and family -
Although years have passed, memories remain close at hand. David and Sandra, I remember the times you and Todd, Ari, and Jodi spent together at both of our homes. Also, we felt so happy that your family adopted one of our kittens! And, Lila, I was so moved by the marriages that I attended where Rabbi officiated! I feel blessed that we share wonderful thoughts of Rabbi Morton and celebrate him. Realize I grieve with you on your loss.
We knew Mort from the first week he and Lila came to Trenton. Such a long relationship has deep memories. We are sad. Estelle Robinson and Family
May the Almighty comfort you among the mourners of Zion and Yerushalayim.
My family and I are eternally grateful for Mort's leadership, support and love. May he rest in peace.
Dear Lila and Family:
Both you and Mort are very special people. Some of our fondest memories were shared with both of you at Evie and Chets. May Mort rest in peace.
Mort's passing leaves us a legacy of gentle kindness and generosity of spirit.
Nick and Marcia Van Dyck
