Among the 50 people who died in Thursday’s plane crash outside of Buffalo was Cantor Susan Wehle of Temple Beth Am in Williamsville, N.Y. Wehle, who was ordained at Aleph — Alliance for Jewish Renewal, had been working at the synagogue since 2002. She had recently released a CD titled “Shirei Refuah v’Tikvah — Songs of Hope and Healing.”

The Brooklyn-born daughter of Holocaust survivors, Wehle was remembered at a Friday service that brought some 600 mourners to Temple Beth Am, according to a poignant article in The Associated Press.

The American Jewish community has lost a great and inspiring neshama with a strikingly beautiful voice and a marvellous gift for leadership. Cantor Susan was a gracious and giving woman involved in many aspects of synagogue life and pastoral work and brought comfort and healing to many of us on the journey of life. Susan was my friend, colleague and fellow singer and will be remembered as a devoted mother, sister, and daughter, as well as a gifted teacher. She brought Kedusha into every moment and her smile and voice will never be forgotten. A true Tzadeket has made the transition too quickly. Let us dedicate ourselves to the healing of planet through the arts and selfless acts in her memory. Rabbi Jonathan Seidel Eugene Oregon
