Salo Zelermyer, partner with the Policy Resolution Group, wrote an Op-Ed for Washington Jewish Week titled One Weekend, Two Profound Losses on July 27, 2016.
The Op-Ed reflects on the passing of Elie Wiesel, renowned author, Nobel Laureate, and Holocaust survivor, and Max Ticktin, professor of Yiddish and Hebrew literature at George Washington University, both of whom passed away within the span of two days.
Salo writes, “Like so many others, I treasured both Wiesel and Max. Their absence will leave a deep hole in my consciousness that will likely never be filled. I’m sorry to say that I don’t have a profound revelation about why God called them home on the same weekend. I can only suspect that perhaps, at last, the Great Teacher wanted the opportunity to learn from the very best of humanity.”
