International Jewish AIDS Network
Jewish AIDS Memorial Day

Jewish Star and AIDS Ribbon Pin[siehe Kalender]

In response to the growing number of Jewish people who have died of an AIDS-related illness, and the tendency of many people to think that the epidemic does not and has not affected the Jewish community, Rabbi H. Raphael Goldstein and Norman L. Sandfield, Co-chairs of the International Jewish AIDS Network announced a date for Jewish AIDS Memorial Day: Lev B'omer.

Lev B'omer is the 32nd day of the Omer, the 49 days between Passover and Shavuot which has traditionally been a season of mourning for the Jewish people. The Hebrew letters for 32, "lamed" and "bet" spell out the word "lev," which means "heart." A Jewish AIDS Memorial Day "touches directly the hearts and minds of all of us who have loved and lost people to AIDS, and will, we hope, touch the hearts of the people who have tended to ignore this growing, unending epidemic," said Rabbi Goldstein in making this announcement.

To see on which day Lev B'omer falls this year visit a jewish calendar site. "We are urging all synagogues and religious institutions in our Jewish communities to mark Jewish AIDS Memorial Day with special prayers of comfort and hope, and the opportunity to remember the people whose lives have touched our own, each in their own unique way," announced Sandfield. The International Jewish AIDS Network will gladly provide resources and advice on setting up memorial programs in communities throughout the Jewish community, in the United States and around the world.

Rabbi Goldstein is the Director of Los Angeles Jewish AIDS Services, a program of Jewish Family Service of Los Angeles, and Mr. Sandfield is a Co-Chair of Jewish AIDS Network - Chicago, a grass roots organization, now affiliated with the AIDS Pastoral Care Network of Chicago.

For more information, or to indicate that your community or congregation will be participating in Jewish AIDS Memorial Day, please call Rabbi Goldstein at (213) 653-8313.
