Crying - Grief

As a son of Wesleyan, I grieve with the students, the faculty, and the family of Johanna Justin-Jinich.


Yit'gadal v'yit'kadash sh'mei raba
b'al'ma di v'ra khir'utei
v'yam'likh mal'khutei b'chayeikhon uv'yomeikhon
uv'chayei d'khol beit yis'ra'eil
ba'agala uviz'man kariv v'im'ru:
Amein. Y'hei sh'mei raba m'varakh l'alam ul'al'mei al'maya
Yit'barakh v'yish'tabach v'yit'pa'ar v'yit'romam v'yit'nasei
v'yit'hadar v'yit'aleh v'yit'halal sh'mei d'kud'sha
B'rikh hu.
l'eila min kol bir'khata v'shirara
toosh'b'chatah v'nechematah, da'ameeran b'al'mah, v'eemru:
Y'hei sh'lama raba min sh'maya
v'chayim aleinu v'al kol yis'ra'eil v'im'ru
Oseh shalom bim'romav hu ya'aseh shalom
aleinu v'al kol Yis'ra'eil v'im'ru

  • "Tzar Li"

    I'm in tears. This is the first I've heard of this....
    • Thank you, Rachel.

      The alumni got e-mails from Michael Roth (the university's president) as the events unfolded.
  • Oh, no. Poor girl. *sniff* And I still struggle with understanding why... Why, oh why did this have to happen? Bless her soul - and all the others involved. My prayers go out to them all. *sigh*
    • Thank you, Berte.

      I vacillate between imagining what this is like for her parents and her classmates, on the one hand, and agonizing over how someone could reach a point in his life where he would do such a thing.
  • Horrible. At least the guy gave himself up, so maybe her family can have some answers.
