Monday, Mar 21, 2022
8:30 am - 10:30 am

Our Senior Rabbi Ammiel Hirsch and his family, along with the World Union for Progressive Judaism, the Israel Movement for Reform and Progressive Judaism and Arzenu Olami, invite you to pay final respects to Richard (Dick) and Bella Hirsch z”l as they are laid to rest in their beloved Israel.

The interment will take place at 10:30 a.m. Israel Time at Kibbutz Ma’ale HaHamisha Cemetery, on Kibbutz Ma’ale HaHamisha in Israel.

The memorial service will follow at 2:30 p.m. Israel Time (8:30 a.m. ET) at the Hirsch Theatre at Beit Shmuel in Jerusalem. Among speakers paying tribute to Dick and Bella are: Isaac Herzog, president of Israel; Natan Sharansky, former chairman of the executive for the Jewish Agency for Israel; MK Rabbi Gilad Kariv; Yaakov Hagoel, chairman of the World Zionist Organization; Rabbi Lea Mühlstein, chair of Arzenu Olami; and Carole Sterling, chair of the World Union for Progressive Judaism.



Every other week, Rabbi Ammi Hirsch hosts intellectually honest conversations unpacking current events through the lens of Jewish wisdom. Unbound by politics and untethered by party lines, Ammi and his expert guests discuss everything from race and antisemitism to all the other issues that keep you up at night.
