George Posener loved to go to synagogue on Yom Kippur. He loved ending the annual fast with fellow congregants at his synagogue—so much that he donated money to support buying the food every year for the big feast. In turn the synagogue named the annual meal after him.
Posener—a self-made man who early in life lit street lamps in New Haven, then became a successful insurance agent and donor to local causes—didn’t make it to synagogue or the fast for Yom Kippur last weekend. He passed away the night of Yom Kippur, less than three months before his 100th birthday. Following are excerpts from Rabbi Jon-Jay Tilsen’s eulogy at Posener’s Monday afternoon funeral at Congregation Beth El Keser Israel in Westville.
