Dr.Jerry Rabinowitz, RIP

Among the 11 people killed in the Saturday shooting at Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life synagogue was Dr. Jerry Rabinowitz, a 66-year-old geriatric and family physician who welcomed HIV-positive patients into his practice at a time when other doctors treated them like lepers.

He used to love HIV positive patients, treat their disease and hug them, giving them dignity and hope.

May God comfort his family. Shalom!
