Memorial Evening 2017

5777/2017 Memorial Evening of learning
held to mark the 22nd Yahrzeit of Etta Ehrman Kossowsky z.l.

Over fifty people - family, friends as well as people who never knew Etta - came to mark her twenty-second Yahrzeit on this Evening of Learning. It was an amazing evening. Etta’s memory, her personality, was very much present as a continuing inspiration and influence, so many years later.

Listening to the recordings, you can hear it all. After my brief Introduction, Michi Kossowsky, who was Etta’s husband, gives the opening devar Torah on an interesting moral theme,then the Guest Speaker, Dr Perele Ekstein, gives her lecture on ‘The Anaesthesiologist as Gatekeeper; ethical dilemmas’ - as you will hear, Dr Ekstein brings in the audience at crucial points. The learning ends with a devar Torah by Eli Ehrman, Etta’s brother, a brief philosophical look at free will.
