Not sure what to say?

When I think of Dr. Rabbi Posner I think; Integrity, compassion, a beautiful genuine man of G-D.
I am Soo sorry for your loss, I will miss knowing he isn't here. He used to answer my letters personally, I was Soo humbled by that. Such a great and busy man.

I used to sneak out of Sunday School classes to meet with Rabbi Posner because spending time with him was infinitely more enlightening than being in class. He was kind, witty, supportive, and inspirational. He performed both my marriage ceremonies and helped me through a painful divorce. He made my husband (not Jewish) feel welcome. He never judged, and he always found a teachable moment. He was there for my family when my parents passed away, not just as a representative of Emanuel,...

It is with great sadness that we express our deepest condolences to Sylvia and her family on the passing of our dear Rabbi David Posner. His exemplary leadership has touch the lives of thousands within our New York City community and globally.
He went above and beyond his rabbinical duties and his legacy will remain forever. May God bless him and keep him.
Jill Libman and all the Libman family.

My prayers along with my sincere condolences go out to you all. In this difficult time may you find peace and comfort in the God of Abraham.

I hope this message reaches Rabbi Posner's wife and children, to let them know how their father/husband touched so many lives. I was just a part time Hebrew school teacher in the 1980s, and left in order to join a serious boyfriend in California. When it didn't work out, and I moved back to NY, I wrote to Rabbi Posner to ask if I might have my position back, because things didn't work out in CA.

Dear Sylvia

I am so very sorry to learn of Rabbi Posner's death.

I will always remember him (and you) for the kindness shown me as I was preparing to marry my (now deceased) first husband and for the beautiful and meaningful wedding ceremony he performed in 1985.

I am confident that your children and your grandchildren are a credit to him and please know I am keeping you in my thoughts and prayers and send you my deepest sympathy and a warm embrace.

Please accept my condolences for the precious loss of Dr. Posner. May the God of Abraham comfort all, and may HE give to each, peace and hope for the future. Jeremiah 29:11
Deepest condolences.

I am so sorry that Rabbi Posner died. I was a classmate of his at Tilden H.S., class of 1965. He and I never knew each other in that huge school population, but I knew of him and his then-girlfriend (and future wife and lifelong companion, Sylvia Smialy). I still have the Tilden yearbook in which he said he wanted to be a rabbi.

He gave enormously to other human beings. I send his family condolences on their loss of this remarkable and beloved man.
