Today is the Yahrzeit of my Uncle (Dr. Milton Raskin – מנדל אברהם בן ישראל) who was niftar (passed on) one year ago today according to the Hebrew calendar. May his neshama have an aliyah (לעילוי נשמת).
Personal Thoughts – I never really knew my Uncle so well to be honest but in the process over the past year of saying kaddish for him everyday in Shul (the Synagogue) I got to know him more, spiritually speaking. Hoping his neshama has an aliyah (his spirit reaches greater heights).
