Newtown Rabbi: Gun Control, Anti-Bullying Policies Are Vital

12/27/2012

Hours after Adam Lanza executed 20 first graders and 6 adults in Sandy Hook elementary school, five minutes from my synagogue, Congregation Adath Israel of Newtown, I spoke with my good friend and colleague, Monsignor Robert Weiss, about the “culture of violence” in the United States.

Noah Pozner: A Loving ‘Little Man’

At first Newtown funeral, 6-year-old Noah Pozner remembered.

It was a eulogy for a life that had only just begun.

Veronique Pozner remembered her son Noah as a rambunctious, video-game loving “little man,” a boy with a perpetual smile and twinkly blue eyes who dreamed of becoming a doctor, a soldier or manager of a factory that makes tacos — his favorite food.

Noah Samuel Pozner, age 6, was the youngest victim of the massacre last week at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. He was laid to rest Monday, his miniature wooden casket set beneath the podium where his mother stood.
